So it seems that Becchio fancies the idea of a move away from Elland Road - how else can Old Big Gob's comments be interpreted? And who can blame the Argentine hotshot when the new owners seem just as reluctant to open their wallet as Master Bates?
If it is true that Becchio is on £15k a week then a move to any Premiership club would see his wages rise considerably. And at 29, he has to think about safeguarding his future. You are a long time retired in football.
Mind you, Warnock's critism of Becchio seems a bit rich. His 19 goals represent a superb return given Leeds have had less shots on goal than any other team in the Championship. If the midfield don't create openings, how is a striker meant to score exactly? Leeds managed just eight shots all game, with none on target. And even more damningly, didn't win a single corner - playing against a team that haven't won at home for 3 months!
Old Big Gob sounded like a man close to the edge after today's defeat and the fans at Elland Road are losing patience. The Board won't be happy to hear fans calling for Warnock's head and may well court popularity by sacking him rather than risk the ire turning in their direction so soon after investing £50m+ to buy the club.
Let's face it, eleventh in the Championship isn't good enough, is it?
