Charlton desperate for Leeds to again be beating Man Utd in Premier League

Leeds United legend Jack Charlton is desperate to see his old club trading blows with Manchester United on a regular basis.

Leeds entertain Tottenham at Elland Road in their FA Cup replay.

"I want them to get out of this," Charlton told the Daily Mail. "Leeds is too big a city to have a third division club. I want them back in the Premier League.

"I don't know how long the crowd will tolerate this. When I played there the capacity was about 48,000, and it was sold out every week.

"If Newcastle score a goal I'm on my feet. If Leeds United score, I'm on my feet. If Man United score, I sit down.

"Alec (Ferguson) is a terrific manager - to keep them at that level for so long - but I would like Leeds to join them. I want Leeds back."
