'What is she doing?' – Leeds fan steals ball and bizarrely refuses to give it back despite side losing against Chelsea
FANS were left perplexed last night when a Leeds supporter stole the match ball and refused to give it back… despite her side losing to Chelsea.
The Blues were coasting on their way to a serene 3-0 win at Elland Road against ten-man Leeds, when the ball was fired into the stands.
It fell into the hands of one woman in the home end… who wouldn't give it back.
In an excruciating clip circulating online, she clasps it under her arm and says: "It's our ball."
She smiles as she does so, although some of those around her get more and more irate as the scene goes on.
The camera zooms in on Marcos Alonso, who is grinning through the bizarre scene, not bothered about getting on in a hurry.

Another fan can be heard shouting "Come on!" as the seconds continue to tick by.
Eventually an incensed looking Raphinha comes over, demanding that the fans give the ball back.
At this point, a young boy manages to get his hands on the ball and he chucks it to the Brazilian, who then passes it on to Alonso.
Responding to the strange incident, one fan wrote: "I don’t get this. Everyone laughing and joking around her, wasting time when you’re losing and in a relegation battle.

"Why aren’t the Leeds fans going mental at her to get the ball back to him?!"
Another mocked: "Leeds fans wasting their own teams time! Incredible IQ."
While a third added: "Alonso is astonished at their foolishness."
Leeds' defeat leaves them in serious relegation trouble, sitting 18th behind Burnley and Everton.
After the game, manager Jesse Marsch bemoaned his side making similar mistakes to those made in their 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.
He said: "I'm gutted. We give up an early goal and go down a man again – deja vu.
"We don't get a chance to stay in the game and see if we can test ourselves and come away with more. We lose another player.
