Brazilian Likes Leeds Shock

This is terrific news for all Leeds fans.

So far he has played three times for United. Two 4-0 drubbings, in which he had a nightmare against Marcus Bent and Duncan Ferguson and in the other defeat, he was sent-off on his home debut.

The World Cup winner, yes we keep saying it, but apparently it's true, is on loan from Serie A giants AC Milan.

The 27-year-old said on "I would love to play here for another three years. Yes, there are problems but I don't want to look at another club.

"It's the same way I found love in my life, at first sight. With Leeds it's the same, love at first sight. I love the country and the city. I wake up happy and enjoy going to the club, even with everything else that has been happening."

Marvellous. If I was on a reported £40k a week, any city would look great when I woke up!
