Luciano Becchio’s Elland Road departure was gutting for Leeds United’s supporters, who to this day still question the club’s decision to swap the Argentinian striker for Steve Morison.
Leeds struck a deal with Norwich in the winter of 2013, which saw Morison arrive at Elland Road and Becchio head in the opposite direction for his first taste of Premier League football.
The move didn’t really work out for anybody, but Leeds certainly got the wrong end of the deal, with their leading goalscorer departing.
Becchio remains a popular figure at Elland Road, and today, Leeds’ official Twitter account has given him a mention.
Nigel Farage’s opinion on Theresa May’s Brexit agreement has sparked all sorts of reaction on social media, with Leeds weighing in.
@LUFC responded to Farage, claiming that May’s Brexit agreement wasn’t the worst in history, but the decision to swap Morison for Becchio was.
Nah Nige, that’d be Steve Morison for Luciano Becchio ???? https://t.co/3IOuJXpVN6

Becchio managed 86 goals during his time at Leeds, with Morison’s spell bringing only five Championship goals.
Morison is now with Millwall across the Championship, with the 35-year-old coming up against Leeds twice a season with the Lions.
Leeds’ supporters will absolutely love the club’s light-hearted response to Farage.
The swap deal between Leeds and Norwich back in 2013 still leaves supporters scratching their heads, with Morison an unpopular figure around Elland Road after his disappointing spell in Yorkshire.
