Leeds United will be vying for promotion from the Championship in the 2019/20 campaign, and a photo released of a former striking duo has got some fans speaking out regarding the potential impact that they could have in the current Leeds side.
Luciano Becchio and Jermaine Beckford, who spent a combined nine years at the club, scored 86 and 84 goals respectively whilst plying their trade at Elland Road.
The duo are clearly remembered fondly by some of the Whites’ fanbase, and given Leeds’ inconsistent start to the 2019/20 season, some fans have even stated that they would represent better options than the current strikers at the club.
Although the likes of Patrick Bamford and Eddie Nketiah are highly promising players and have scored a combined eight league goals so far this season, it’s clear that some Leeds fans would love to see a return to the days of Becchio and Beckford up front for the club.
Check out some of the best reactions to the photo released below…

To say I enjoyed the work of these two characters would be greatly understating it.
