Some Leeds United fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by ex-Whites left-back Ian Harte to share their positive memories of the club’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final first-leg victory over Deportivo La Coruna from the 2000/01 campaign.
The Whites managed to put three goals past Deportivo at Elland Road in the first-leg of their 2000/01 Champions League quarter-final clash. This victory was ultimately substantial enough to help the Whites advance to the semi-finals of that season’s competition, as Deportivo could only manage to earn a 2-0 win at home in the second-leg, meaning that Leeds would advance to the semi-finals after winning the tie 3-2 on aggregate.
The Whites’ official club Twitter account recently posted a tweet sharing footage of this memorable night in the club’s history. Harte, who started at left-back for Leeds in that clash, subsequently shared the club’s recent tweet via a tweet of his own in which he reflects positively on this game.
In addition to starting at left-back for the Whites in this classic win, Harte scored the opening goal of the game in the 26th-minute via a direct free kick. As a result, it may be understandable why the former Republic of Ireland international might hold some positive memories of this game.
Some Whites fans have been sharing some joyful reactions to Harte’s recent tweet, as they have also been reflecting fondly on this classic win. Read the recent posts from some Leeds fans who have been reacting positively to Harte’s recent post in the tweets below.
