The rivalry between Leeds and Millwall is such that even the former’s official club Twitter account couldn’t resist a sly dig at the latter’s in response to a tweet by Nigel Farage on Wednesday.
In light of the recent Brexit agreement, Farage took to social media to vent his frustration at the deal, calling it “the worst deal in history”; in response, Leeds nominated another.
Fans were in in stitches as they lamented the 2013 swap deal of Luciano Becchio to Norwich, in which the Whites received Steve Morison in return – a player who then scored just five goals in 41 appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit after his arrival.
Nah Nige, that’d be Steve Morison for Luciano Becchio ? https://t.co/3IOuJXpVN6

Now plying his trade at Millwall in his second spell with the London club, the 35-year-old has scored 31 in 137 for the Lions – a marked improvement – but that didn’t stop Leeds’ Twitter account from sneakily prodding their rivals.
Here’s how the Elland Road faithful reacted.
This is gold! Incoming Millwall meltdown!
