The football club from West Yorkshire returned to the Premier League

The presence of Leeds United, the football club from West Yorkshire, will be the spice that is worth the wait for the 2020/21 Premier League season.

In the early match of the 45th Championship round (second place under the British system), West Brom lost 1-2 at Huddersfield Town, indirectly helping Leeds United soon win promotion tickets to the Premier League.

The army under coach Bielsa currently leads the group with 87 points after 44 games. Even though they are promoted, they still have the goal of earning at least 1 more point in the last 2 rounds to win the championship.

Leeds United fans were thrilled

Leeds United fans have been waiting for this moment for the past 16 years. Since dropping out of the Premier League in 2004, Leeds experienced many struggles, sometimes down to League One (third place under the British system).

The Elland Road team also repeatedly approached the promotion ticket, but often fell off the horse at the decisive time. It was not until Coach Bielsa appeared that Leeds changed.

Leeds United used to be a special team of the Premier League

Leeds United is has a liberal, sassy image, ready to challenge the giants. Leeds also owned many famous players such as Eric Cantona, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, Robbie Keane, Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Fowler, James Milner…

After relegation, Leeds United continuously fell into debt. Due to financial difficulties, they had to sell all their stars and even had time to drop to second place (League One). But then overcoming many events and ups and downs, the white shirt team got up and realized the dream of returning to the old roof.

The return of the 100-year-old team in West Yorkshire was a big event with foggy football. Even, it also created an echo like the championship after 30 years of waiting for Liverpool.
