Former Leeds United defender and captain Dominic Matteo underwent surgery on a brain tumour earlier this week. He is now recovering having been in intensive care in Leeds General Infirmary.
First and foremost, all of us at Through It All Together are wishing for a full and speedy recovery.
Matteo, 45, spent four years at Elland Road after joining from Liverpool in August 2000, making 146 appearances and scoring four goals. The most famous of which was his “f**king great goal, in the San Siro” against AC Milan in a 1-1 draw in the Champions League as Leeds reached the semi-final in the 2000/01 season.
We are sending our support to @Dominicmatteo21 after the former Reds player was taken seriously ill earlier this week ❤️— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 16, 2019
