Brexit has caused a lot of debate in this country over the last two years with various people giving their different opinions on what they think of Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal. Leeds United Twitter staff decided to weigh in on the debate this morning.  

Cast your mind back to 2013 and the January transfer window. Norwich were fighting to stay in the Premier League and Leeds were aiming for the Championship play-offs. The two clubs came to an agreement for the transfer of Luciano Becchio. Norwich would pay a fee and would offer Steve Morison in return for Leeds’ top scorer.

The deal did not work out well for either party. The then 29 year-old would only go on to make 13 appearances for Norwich and fail to register a single goal. The next season he was loaned out to Rotherham United.

Steve Morison was given the unenviable task of following in the Argentine’s footsteps and its safe to say it never worked out, he scored just 5 goals in his 41 appearances for the club. He then moved back to Millwall on loan for the 2013/14 season scoring 8 goals in 41 appearances.

Fast forward to today, when the UK government is rumoured to have made a breakthrough in Brexit talks (finally!), former UKIP Leader and Leave campaigner Nigel Farage have his opinion on what he thought of the deal:

To the humour of Leeds fans the clubs official Twitter account replied to Mr Farage’s tweet, firing back the following quoted retweet:

Morison who is now 35 is still playing with Millwall where he is held in high regard with the clubs fans.
