Becchio Gets The Plaudits

Becchio Gets The Plaudits

Description: Luciano Becchio United's Argentine Forward gets the plaudits from the Irish Defender Darren O'Dea here after he scored for United. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game at Elland Road against Brighton And Hove Albion on the 11th February, 2012. Both Becchio and O'Dea played the full game for Leeds while Luciano also scored against the Seagulls.

The Argentinian Becchio was signed by Gary McAllister on the 31st July, 2008 for three years. He impressed the manager with his performances during the 2007-08 pre-season friendlies while on loan from Spanish outfit Merida Union Deportiva. With some stellar performances for Leeds since his arrival he has made the number 10 shirt his own and become a fans favourite.

Manager Simon Grayson signed Darren O'Dea from Celtic on the 4th August, 2011 for a season long loan. O'Dea had a trial with Leeds United aged 13 and was given his customary number 48 shirt after the player arrived for real. Darren made his debut for Leeds at the start of the 2011-12 season in the game against Southampton. After the signing was completed the player commented.."I'm delighted to be here. I'd been looking to get away and as soon as I heard of Leeds' interest I had no doubts.... I was on trial here as a 13-year-old and the place was impressive then. It's changed a bit since, but it's a great set-up here and it was an easy decision to make.

Leeds United: Lonergan, Smith, Lees, O'Dea, Pugh, Snodgrass, Clayton, Delph, White, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Townsend for White, Nunez for McCormack.
