Leeds coach calls it the 'miss of the century'

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Luke Varney somehow misses the target from a yard away, and his coach can laugh about it later, as Leeds went on to win this League Cup game against Southampton on Tuesday.

Leeds, currently in the second division, will host Chelsea, which beat Manchester United, 5-4, in overtime on Wednesday, in the Capitol One Cup quarterfinals Dec. 10,

The coach for Leeds United, Neil Warnock, had some fun with the woeful finish by Varney 15 minutes into a scoreless game, probably because Leeds went on to win at home 3-0.

“I thought Luke Varney was excellent, despite the ‘miss of the century,’ he didn’t let his head go down and I thought he was outstanding,” Warnock said after the game.

The 30-year-old attacker must have played incredibly well to be called “excellent” during a game that included this epic shank on a short pass from Senagelese teammate El-Hadji Diouf. Exactly how does a professional, in the mouth of goal, go wide of the target from a yard out on a tap in?

Easy. Like this…
