Troy Deeney reacts on Twitter to drawing Leeds, responds to comment about Giuseppe Bellusci

Watford FC Match

The Watford forward took to social media after hearing about the Leeds draw.

Watford forward Troy Deeney was delighted to have drawn Leeds United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Twitter.

No, the 27-year-old wasn’t being disrespectful or suggesting Leeds is an easy draw for the Hornets.

Indeed, Deeney’s dad is a massive United fan – so the Whites visiting Vicarage Road is the dream draw for his family.

There was a little bit of confusion at first as some fans took exception to the Watford man’s tweets.

Eventually, though, he cleared the situation up and is now looking forward to what should be a memorable day for both Leeds and the home side.

However, Deeney did mock defender Giuseppe Bellusci

Leeds will likely bring big numbers to Watford and both teams now have a great opportunity to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.

The Hornets proved themselves against Championship opposition in the last round against Nottingham Forest.

But Leeds have been going strong under Steve Evans. It should be a cracker.
