‘Legend’, ‘We miss you’ – Plenty of Leeds fans react to Luciano Becchio’s message

Plenty of Leeds United fans have reacted to a message from former player Luciano Becchio who opened up about his time at Elland Road on Instagram.

The Argentine joined the Whites in 2008 from Spanish side Merida UD and went on to make 221 appearances in all competitions for the club, establishing himself as a real favourite in West Yorkshire before moving onto Norwich City five years later.

With the Whites languishing in the third-tier at the time of his arrival, Becchio formed a deadly partnership up-front with Jermaine Beckford which resulted in the pair firing in 40 goals between them as the club achieved promotion to the Championship in 2010.

In the three seasons that succeeded this particular campaign, the forward found the back of the net on 50 occasions in all competitions as he thrived in a Leeds shirt.

Yet after handing in a transfer request in 2013 following a failure to agree a new deal with then Leeds-boss Neil Warnock, Becchio was included in a swap deal with Norwich which saw Steve Morison replace him.

Having retired in 2017, the forward was recently the subject of Sky Bet’s latest #LegendsofEFl series which reminded people of his achievements during his time with the Whites.

Sharing a link to Sky’s video on Instagram, Becchio said that he missed playing at his footballing home, a post which sparked a positive reaction from plenty of Leeds fans.

Here is a look at the best reactions from Leeds fans on social media…
