Many Leeds United fans have flocked to tweet about footage shared showing David Batty tackle Cristiano Ronaldo.
Marcelo Bielsa is set to guide the Elland Road outfit to a Premier League promotion this season, sitting top of the Championship table as things stand.
With Leeds’ potential return, former rivalries with some of English football’s top sides will be reignited, including the Yorkshire club’s rivalry with Manchester United.
Leeds and United have had some memorable meetings, with the majority of those coming when the former were last in England’s top flight division.
With football at a standstill at present due to the recent pandemic, fans have looked back at some memorable footage via social media that shows former midfielder Batty fouling former United forward Ronaldo.
The fixture from 2003 which ended with United winning 1-0, featured some memorable on pitch battles with Batty also coming up against fierce Red Devils midfielder Roy Keane.
Ronaldo, now with Juventus, went on to have great success, both with United and Spanish Real Madrid, winning four Champions League titles.
