Gordon McQueen: I don't like going back to Leeds now

Leeds United East Stand

The former Leeds defender has been discussing the club and its fans.

Former Leeds United defender Gordon McQueen says he doesn't like going back to the city now, despite loving it when he played at Elland Road, according to the Scotsman.

Indeed, the 63-year-old spent six years with Leeds, before moving to Manchester United and spending seven years with the club.

And that made everything go 'sour,' he admits. What specifically bothers him now is the fact so many fans wear T-shirts denouncing the likes of him and other players who left the Whites for Manchester United.

As such, McQueen now avoids the city of Leeds whenever he can.

McQueen told the Scotsman: "I don’t like going back to Leeds now. I loved the city when I played there but then everything went sour.

"When you see your umpteenth lad, not even born at the time, in a T-shirt reading Red scum - Cantona, Ferdinand, Jordan, McQueen, you think, ‘Ach, that’s enough.'"

Naturally, Leeds fans have held plenty of grudges, especially when it comes to the likes of Eric Cantona and Rio Ferdinand.

Another many felt betrayed by was Harry Kewell, who left for Liverpool.

More recently, Ross McCormack moved to Fulham but there has always been a debate about whether he forced a move or, rather, Massimo Cellino forced the Scot to leave Leeds.

And, come January or the end of the season, the same debate may be being had about Sam Byram...
