With the coronavirus pandemic putting all games on hold for the immediate future and more and more cases being confirmed daily, clubs up and down the country have been doing their best to remind fans to wash their hands for 20 seconds to help fight the spread of the virus.
Leeds United are among the latest sides to take to social media to remind fans of this, and have loads of supporters reacting after using Pablo Hernandez’s quick-fire strike against West Bromwich Albion from last season.

The club’s official Twitter account shared that it takes the same amount of time to watch West Brom take kick-off, lose the ball and Hernandez score his tantalising hit from the edge of the box and celebrate as it should washing your hands.
Hernandez’s goal helped Marcelo Bielsa’s side to go on and clinch a 4-0 win over the Baggies with Patrick Bamford and Ezgjan Alioski also on the scoresheet, for a result that was enough to go top of the table after 35 games.
Most supporters responded to the club’s post by sharing that they ‘love it’ and that it brightened their mood amid this glum global crisis, though that was not the case for all.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the club’s post…
Using a horrible pandemic like this to try get one over on a footy rival is absolutely sickening. Suggest this is deleted.
