Lots of Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after the club announced that we will be hosting Bayern Munich in a legends game.
The match, due to be held at Elland Road during the March international break, comes as part of the club’s ongoing centenary season celebrations and will be played in support of the Leeds United Foundation.
The Whites have not played Bayern in any competition since the 1975 European Cup Final in Paris, when Jimmy Armfield’s side tore the Bundesliga powerhouse apart early on before painfully falling short at the final hurdle.
United paid the price for not capitalising on our early dominance, with goals from Franz Roth and Gerd Muller controversially moving Bayern ahead.
Do you hold a grudge for how the '75 Final ended?
Neither Roth nor Muller will feature in the legends match on March 28, which will see Martin Demichelis, Ze Roberto and Giovane Elber join Lucio and Carsten Jancker in representing the German giants.
Leeds will be represented by a range of players from our recent history, including Olivier Dacourt, Lee Bowyer, Ian Harte, Gary Kelly, Danny Mills, Jermaine Beckford, Luciano Becchio, Simon Grayson, Rob Green, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Noel Whelan, Michael Brown, Micky Gray, and Richard Cresswell.
Howard Wilkinson and David O’Leary will co-manage the affair in the home dugout.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans reacted to the club’s post, announcing a legends match with Bayern Munich…
thought we’d signed Lewandowski for a minute there…
