Ian Harte sends Twitter message to Leeds fans before Elland Road return

Elland Road

The Leeds legend has taken to social media ahead of his appearance at his old ground on Saturday afternoon.

Ian Harte has taken to Twitter ahead of his Elland Road return on Saturday afternoon.

Indeed, the 38-year-old will be Leeds United's guest of honour as the Yorkshire side host Brentford this weekend.

The Irishman recently announced his retirement as a player and will now become an agent.

And, ahead of Leeds' Championship clash with Brentford, Harte wished the Whites all the best in their pursuit of their second win of the league season.

After the international break, Uwe Rosler's side will be looking to sustain the momentum at Elland Road, with United having beaten Derby County in their last action before the club season paused.

Before then, Leeds had drawn all four of their league clashes. Added spice for Rosler, of course, comes from the fact he will be facing one of his old clubs in Brentford.

The German will face a number of selection dilemmas, with Leeds now boasting added depth out wide, up front and through midfield after the close of the transfer window.

And maybe Harte's presence can help push Rosler's men over the line against the Bees!
