Marcus Rashford Immediately Deletes Tweet About Leeds United Being Promoted To The Premier League
Marcelo Bielsa's side were officially promoted to the English top-flight last night following West Brom's defeat to Huddersfield Town.
It will be their first time back in the Premier League since 2004 and Rashford had a message for his side's rivals.
"As a United fan I'm happy to see Leeds United back in the Premier League where they belong. Congrats," the 22-year-old posted before quickly removing the message.

The Whites have gone 16 years without playing in the top flight following relegation in 2003/04.
15 permanent managers have been employed since in a bid to return to the promised land and the club even had a stint in League One.
Their last Premier League game was a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in 2004 and 28 different clubs have achieved promotion to the top tier since.

Former goalkeeper Paul Robinson spoke to Sky Sports following the West Brom result and explained: "It's been long-awaited and very long overdue.
"When I played that last game in 2004, 16 years ago, you never envisaged that Leeds United would be out of the top flight for so long, and even dropping to the third tier of English football.
"From what Marcelo Bielsa inherited two-and-a-half years ago - a team that finished 14th in the Championship - to now automatic promotion to the Premier League, it's absolutely fantastic.
"A Premier League with Leeds United in it is a much more attractive fixture than many others."
