Why would a former One Direction star and a massive football club be beefing? Read on...
One of the more bizarre Twitter beefs has erupted overnight as Niall Horan, one of the former stars of One Direction, has gotten involved in a social media spat with Leeds United Football Club.
It all began with Wednesday night’s set of Championship football fixtures, in which Derby County – whom Horan supports – won 4-1 away at much-fancied West Bromwich Albion. Clearly overjoyed with seeing his team cement their position as title challengers, the singer told his 39 million followers “@dcfcofficial are a dream to watch play”.
