Habibou And Tongue

Description: United's African Forward Habib Habibou and Midfielder Michael Tonge caught during some pre-match training on the Elland Road pitch in this one. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Cardiff City at Elland Road on the 2nd February, 2013. Both players were on the bench at the start for this one with Habibou replacing El Hadji Diouf on 73 minutes.

Habib Habibou trained with Leeds United during the first half of the 2012-13 season and was later viewed by manager Neil Warnock as a potential replacement for Luciano Becchio, if the Argentine moved on. After Becchio left Leeds on January 31st, transfer deadline day, Neil Warnock moved to sign Habibou. The Central African Forward signed for The Whites on a six month loan from SV Zulte Waregem with an option to make the move permanent. Habibou made his debut for Leeds as substitute replacing El Hadji Diouf in the Championship game against Cardiff City at Elland Road on the 2nd February, 2013. By the 3rd May the Club announced they would not be making Habibou's loan deal permanent.

On the 13th September, 2012 the United manager Neil Warnock signed Michael Tonge on loan till December, 2012. Coming from Sheffield United this is the second time Tonge has played under the stewardship of Warnock. The United Boss told the official site, "A loan had to be someone we wanted and Michael fits the category and I think he'll fit in well. He's desperate to do well. I like that, and I like him as a person. He gives us that passing ability we maybe don't have and he'll fit in well. In January 2013 Tonge signed for The Whites on a permanent two and a half-year contract.

Leeds United: Kenny, Byram, Peltier, Lees, White, Barkley, Brown, Austin, Varney, Diouf, McCormack.
Subs: Habibou for Diouf.
