Leeds United and Manchester United have a famed rivalry – and they may just be able to renew that rivalry in the Premier League next season.
This week, Gary Neville noted how the rivalry between the two clubs is 'brutal', and wanted Leeds back in the top flight to face each other again.
Leeds were nearing promotion before the coronavirus outbreak put a halt to the campaign, and it's unclear when the season will be able to resume, or if Leeds will actually go up.
With the United Kingdom now in lockdown, there is no football for fans to enjoy – and no football for budding footballers to play at grassroots level.
On Monday, journalist Sarah-Jayne Tobin took to Twitter to post a video of her son, who was trying to train his goalkeeping skills on his own due to the 'social distancing' in place.
One day, if he wants, and when all this is over, I would like to practice my freeckicks with him on goal! What do you think? https://t.co/Brl6omumf4— Juan Mata García (@juanmata8) March 23, 2020
Juan Mata even sent a message too, as the £37million Manchester United man put the rivalry between the two clubs to one side in order to offer to practice with the kid in the future, once the coronavirus crisis has passed, with Mata praised for his willingness to help.
