In response to Crysencio Summerville’s claims on Twitter that the Dutchman got in the Rotherham United defender’s head during Leeds United’s 1-1 draw at the New York Stadium, Lee Peltier took to Twitter.
Summerville, 22, scored first after Georginio Rutter’s deft pass that resulted in Peltier’s loss. It was one of nine goals this season for Summerville. Throughout the 23–24 season, he assisted on 15 goals in 17 games.
This week, Summerville talked about how, during Leeds’ unsuccessful trip to Rotherham, he got inside Peltier’s head. When Hakeem Odoffin scored to make it 1-1 for the evening, his goal was nullified.
He claimed to have joked with Peltier, a right-back who, naturally, spent two years playing for Leeds between 2012 and 2014, totaling 75 appearances for the Whites, about losing Peltier.
Peltier has now answered. Peltier commended the Leeds man in a tweet to our LeedsUnited.News account, but he claimed not to have heard the man say those things during the match on November 24.

Leeds has won six games and collected 19 points from a possible 21 games, with the draw against Rotherham being the only defeat in our last seven games. Summerville has been very important.
He will be essential once more when Leeds plays Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night. a crucial matchup against a team that is fired up following their victory over West Brom despite Tony Mowbray.
