Leeds United received a particularly sad news today (Saturday). Peter Lorimer, one of the club’s legends and one who broke the team’s record of conquests after more than 700 appearances in the white uniform, has died at the age of 74 after a serious illness.

The Scot, who played in the offensive midfield position at the big Leeds, is also known for Israeli football. In the 1985/86 season, Lorimer came to Israel and signed with Hapoel Haifa as a player. After a short time he was appointed the team’s coach and at the end of the season when he was relegated to the sub-league, he left Israel.

In recent years, Laurimer has been interviewed quite a bit about Leeds’ condition, with whom he played between 1962 and 1979 and also in 1984. In the club where Safado starred: “He was one of the greatest ever. His contribution on and off the field will never be forgotten, he will remain an icon of the club forever. “
