Leeds United got their preseason tour of Slovenia off to a good start with a 3-0 win against a Select XI squad that was made even better when manager Brian McDermott gave the club's traveling supporters some beer money.

According to the Yorshire Evening Post's Phil Hay, the fans chanted "Oh Brian, it's your round" at full time and McDermott, who replaced Neil Warnock in April of this year, reached in his pocket and passed €50 to them through the fence — a moment captured by photographer Jonathan Gawthorpe. When asked about the gesture, McDermott explained that it was the least he could do.

The money was soon put to good use...

If only Rafa Benitez had done this when he got to Chelsea, he could've saved himself a lot of trouble.
