The BBC have reported that Yorkshire MEP Richard Corbett has written to Uefa calling for an inquiry into the result of the 1973 Cup Winners' Cup final between Leeds United and AC Milan.
Recent match-fixing events in Italy prompted Mr Corbett to act, stating that after Milan won 1-0, they were allowed to keep the title even after the referee for the game was banned for life.
Mr Corbett told the BBC: 'Uefa must investigate games like these and if Milan are discovered to have fixed the match, then Leeds should be awarded the trophy.'
His letter to UEFA said: 'Uefa should investigate not just the recent period but past events in which match fixing may have played a role, even as far back as AC Milan's win over Leeds United in the 1973 Cup Winners' Cup final.
'Such action would visibly and dramatically demonstrate Uefa's commitment to fair play and to taking breaches of it seriously.
'Failure to take visible action that demonstrates clearly to clubs, fans and the wider public that cheating will not succeed will leave football vulnerable to a slow corrosion of confidence in the game that will undermine its future.'
If an investigation ever comes to light and Leeds were to be awarded the title, surely we should be awarded a European Cup title too!
