The Ivory Coast & Argentina

The Ivory Coast & Argentina

Description: The Ivory Coast & Argentina represented here in White with Max Gradel the Ivorian Midfielder and Luciano Becchio the Argentine Striker wearing the United colours on the Elland Road pitch. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Norwich City at Elland Road on the 19th February, 2011. Gradel played the full ninety minutes for Leeds in the game against the Norfolk outfit but Becchio while scoring United's first was replaced on 90 minutes by Billy Paynter.

Ivorian Max Gradel was brought in from Leicester City by manager Simon Grayson for a month loan deal on the 19th October, 2009. Max made an impressive start for the Whites winning the Man of the Match award for Leeds after coming on as substitute in a 2-1 win over Norwich City at Elland Road on the very same day as his move. On the 13th November, 2009 after several more impressive performances for Leeds Grayson extended Gradels loan period to reach up to the 2nd January, 2010. Further into the season of 2009-10 and Grayson was again prompted to extend Gradels loan period after some crucial match winning performances for the Whites but after a 4-2 win against Stockport County manager Grayson confirmed he had begun talks with all the parent clubs of United's loan players and shortly after on the 25th January, 2010 Gradel was signed by Leeds in a two-and-a-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

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.

Leeds United: Schmeichel, Lichaj, O'Brien, Bruce, McCartney, Johnson, Kilkenny, Snodgrass, Howson, Gradel, Becchio.
Subs: Somma for Kilkenny, Paynter for Becchio.
