Leeds United to Ditch New Crest?!

Following today's widely ridiculed crest unveiling, Leeds United CEO Angus Kinnear confirmed that the club will reopen the consultation process over the crest.

“We always knew that the introduction of a crest, particularly one that is so bold and such a break away from the traditional conventions of football club crests, was going to create debate and may be controversial,” Kinnear said.

A petition asking the club to scrap the new design managed to gain more than 50k signatures within a day and now it looks increasingly unlikely that the unveiled design ends up appearing on next season's kits after all.

“[...] we don’t want to do anything that the majority of the fanbase don’t believe in.”
Leeds' move recalls memory of Everton who unsuccessfully launched a new crest in 2013 before ditching it completely the next season.
