Former Leeds United defender Ian Harte took to his official Twitter account on Monday night to congratulate the club’s Under-23 side for their Professional Development League North title success, but it was an amazing u-turn considering his scathing comments about them in February 2018.

The former Whites left-back ripped into the Yorkshire outfit via the same social media platform only last year, saying they were losing their identity because of the Spanish being spoken by the manager and his players.
Fuming tonight, went to watch @LUFC Under 23s v Birmingham. Leeds is losing its identity, as all I could hear was Spanish been spoken by players and manager!!! We are a club that has over years and years brought through quality players. But what I witnessed is players lacking

However, it appears to be a tactic that has worked out pretty well considering Carlos Corberan and his men have wrapped up the league with two games to spare following their 2-0 success against Colchester United in Essex on Monday.
Harte would certainly have had to eat a slice of humble pie before sending his message of congratulations on Twitter, and admit that the future is actually looking good under the likes of Corberan, Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta.
Respect must go out to the 41-year-old former Republic of Ireland international for his latest comments, but there was still no sign of him directly saying he had been proven wrong.
