PELE? At Elland Road? If ever Leeds United needed the feelgood factor it’s now.
And if ever anyone was capable of bringing a touch of glamour, it’s the Brazilian star who still ranks as arguably the greatest footballer in history. Leeds United’s problems are huge and well documented.
But could it be that Pele could bring the magic touch to help transform its fortunes? (Admittedly that’s being a little over optimistic on our part).
The club’s new ‘play-offs or your money back’ season ticket offer, however, is a good move – and one that will be broadly welcomed by its long-suffering supporters.
