Former England international Karen Carney has deleted her Twitter account after a torrent of abuse following a post made by the club's official account.
The club appeared to mock Carney's comments made after Leeds' 5-0 win over West Brom.
“I actually think they got promoted [last season] because of Covid, in terms of it gave them a bit of respite,” Carney told Amazon Prime.
