Striker Luciano Becchioâ€™s arrival on January transfer deadline day made it four ex-United players on Cityâ€™s books, with Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson and Robert Snodgrass all having come up against Norwich for Leeds during the clubsâ€™ battle for the League One title in 2009-10.
â€śI think we must have a direct debit with Leeds or something,â€ť smiled the City captain to the Pink 'Un. â€śBut you donâ€™t mind as long as you are bringing in quality, which we are.
â€śI donâ€™t think anyone can argue about Howson, Snodgrass, Johnson and Becchio â€“ bringing in players like that. I think if you asked any Leeds fans they would be bitterly disappointed, but to bring in that quality it doesnâ€™t matter where you get them from. We are just fortunate we keep nicking it off their team.
â€śBecchio is a good player; everyone has known that for a while. Weâ€™ve seen him in the Championship and we know what he can do. He is aggressive and it is competition. That is what we will thrive on."
