Leeds United: Fans react to iconic Champions League semi-final side after interesting stat - Leeds United

Lots of Leeds United supporters have been responding to a tweet from MansionBet after the betting site threw a sly dig at Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

Following Brian Clough’s brief stint in charge, the Whites famously reached the final of the 1975 European Cup, suffering a heart-breaking loss to Bayern Munich, in a game that remains controversial to this day, as Franz Beckenbauer appeared to handle the ball in the box.

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

More recently, having beaten the likes of AC Milan and Roma, David O’Leary’s side made the semi-finals of its successor, the Champions League, back in 2001. Rio Ferdinand was the club’s most expensive arrival that season, having moved to Elland Road from West Ham United for £23.4m.

Despite both teams frequently splashing the cash, neither PSG or City have made it further than the Peacocks in the competition so far.

At present, Marcelo Bielsa’s squad sit at the top of the Championship table, seven-points-clear from the playoff places, with Premier League promotion firmly in their sights. If Andrea Radrizzani can continue to back his head coach in the upcoming transfer windows, the Argentine’s team could hit the same heights as their contemporaries in the future.

Naturally, the post drew plenty of attention from the United faithful, with many fans praising O’Leary’s “quality” players. One fan dubbed the statistic as “huge” while another called it “unreal.”
