Trivia: An iconic footballer for Palmeiras, not so much for Leeds United. There was excitement at Elland Road when Peter Reid brought Roque Junior on loan, but it was short lived as the team conceded 24 times in his 7 appearances and Roque was sent off on his debut against Birmingham City. However, he did score two goals in a Worthington Cup game against Man U (Leeds lost 3–2) but it was not enough to win the hearts of the Leeds United fans and he’s now regarded as one of the Elland Road clubs biggest ever flops, earning the nickname The Roque Horror Show.
