Legendary Leeds United defender Lucas Radebe has shared his thoughts on last night’s impressive 2-0 win against Derby County at Elland Road.
Radebe, who played for Leeds for 11 years between 1994 and 2005, has been watching his former club keenly ever since and was clearly impressed with what he saw on Friday night.
Taking to Twitter he wrote: “Great result great performance come on Leeds MOT.”
The home side could have had a penalty just seconds into the game when Ezgjan Alioski was bundled over by Andre Wisdom in the Derby area but the linesman had, incorrectly, judged the Leeds left-back to be offside.
Kemar Roofe gave Leeds the lead in the 20th minute, however, tapping home after some brilliant work from winger Jack Clarke following a poor Scott Carson punch.
It was 2-0 just two minutes into the second half has Carson once again could only claw Clarke’s cross straight to the feet of Alioski who squared for Jack Harrison to tap home to secure all three points.
Radebe is a club legend at Leeds United and it very much looks like they could be heading back to the stage where he made his name.
This was a massive victory for Bielsa and co and showed the true spirit in the team at the moment that has perhaps been missing in recent seasons to put a poor run of form behind them so easily.
