10 Best Players To Play For Both Leeds United And Chelsea

6. Michael Duberry

Chelsea – 1993-99
Leeds United- 1999-2005

Duberry started his professional career with the Blues having come through the youth ranks. The centre-back made a total of 115 appearances for Chelsea and scored 3 goals. He won the League Cup, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup with Chelsea, all in 1998, but faced stiff competition for a place in the side from the likes of Marcel Desailly and Frank Leboeuf.

Seeking regular football, Duberry joined Leeds in 1999. Although he struggled to break into the first-team at Leeds United, Duberry did play in the memorable victory over AC Milan at Elland Road in their 2000-2001 Champions League campaign.

5. Duncan McKenzie

Leeds United – 1974-76
Chelsea – 1978-79

McKenzie was signed for Leeds United by Brian Clough during his 44-day reign as manager of Leeds, and was the only one of his signings to subsequently flourish at the club. McKenzie gained the respect of fans and players alike with some sparkling goalscoring performances.

He finished 1975/76 as top scorer and promptly broke the hearts of the Elland Road faithful by moving to Anderlecht. In September 1978 he joined Chelsea from Everton, where, much like the rest of his career, he dazzled the fans with his skills and eccentricity. He left the club less than a year later having made just 16 appearances and scored four goals. He is one of the best players to have played for both Leeds United and Chelsea.

4. Tore Andre Flo

Chelsea – 1997-2000
Leeds United- 2007-08

One of Chelsea’s best pieces of business of the Premier League era, the west London side signed Tore Andre Flo as a relative unknown from Norwegian side Brann in 1997, with the forward shining upon his move to English football. Flo scored 50 goals for Chelsea before a £12m move to Rangers in 2000.

The Norweigan moved to Leeds on a free transfer in the latter stages of his career, scoring four goals in 24 appearances as the Whites dropped into the third tier of English football.
