Leeds legend Ian Harte has said he is “fuming” after going to watch the Leeds Under-23 side play on Friday afternoon.
In an extraordinary rant on Twitter, Harte said that he went to the Leeds Under-23 game at Thorp Arch and thought that Leeds was “losing its identity”.
In a series of tweets released on his personal twitter page, Harte claimed “all I could hear was Spanish being spoken by players and manager.
“We are a club that has over years and years brought through quality players.
“But what I witnessed is players lacking passion, desire to wear the Leeds shirt with pride. Needs sorting ASAP.”


Harte went on to say that he loves the club but that too many foreign players that aren’t good enough are stopping younger English players’ path through the club.
