Premier League flop brutally trolled at the darts after fans chanted ‘you fat b*****d’ in final-day defeat

A FORMER Premier League player was brutally trolled at the darts with a savage sign shown on live TV.

The Leeds man struggled to make an impact at Elland Road last season.

And on the final day of the season, as Leeds were relegated to the Championship, fans harshly chanted “you fat b*****d” at him.

Now Weston McKennie has been subject to further abuse – this time at Winter Gardens in Blackpool for Monday’s PDC World Matchplay darts action.

As Andrew Gilding walked on to face Peter Wright on Monday, a sign was held out in front of the Sky Sports camera which read: “Weston McKennie loves a takeaway.”

And the Leeds fan had also added “MOT” on the side – which stands for Leeds’ motto, ‘Marching On Together’.

The brutal dig was lauded by a selection of Leeds supporters.

One said: “What a fanbase.”

Another wrote: “Hahahaha 10/10.”

And a third added: “Tweet of the day.”

McKennie, 24, joined Leeds on loan from Juventus for the second half of the season in January.

However, the American could not make his mark in his 20 appearances and was unable to keep the Whites in the top flight.

McKennie’s dad John hit out at Leeds supporters on Twitter following his son’s exit, writing: “All the best to LUFC! For those who supported Weston in a hostile environment, you have my respect!

“For those who failed to remember it’s a team sport, you live to fight another day!”

McKennie now looks set to be sold by his Italian parent club, with Borussia Dortmund linked with a transfer.

Meanwhile, his former club have brought in Daniel Farke as their new boss and Ethan Ampadu to bolster the squad for the Championship.
