Harvey Elliott has responded to a Sky Sports post on social media to say the decision to not overturn Pascal Struijk's red card after Leeds' appeal is "wrong".
Leeds have been unsuccessful in their appeal against the red card shown to Struijk for a tackle that left Liverpool's Elliott requiring surgery on a dislocated ankle.
Struijk was dismissed for the challenge on the Liverpool 18-year-old, which resulted in him being taken off on a stretcher.

Struijk will now be suspended for Leeds' next three matches.
In response to confirmation that the red card will be upheld, Elliott replied to Sky Sports' post on Instagram: "Sorry about this Pascal - I think it's wrong!
"But it'll soon blow over brother and you'll be back in no time smashing it again. Keep positive."
Leeds chairman Andrea Radrizzani also responded to Sky Sports' post on Twitter, saying "unfair".
Elliott is expected to return to action this season, according to Liverpool's club doctor, after the midfielder underwent a successful ankle operation on Tuesday.
Club doctor Jim Moxon told Liverpool's website: "We won't put pressure on him by setting a specific timeframe beyond being able to say with confidence we expect him to feature again later in the season following our rehab programme."
