In the fixture itself, second-half goals from Bamford, Stuart Dallas and Raphinha ensured Leeds took all three points from Tuesday evening’s clash with Southampton, a result which leaves Marcelo Bielsa’s side sitting in 10th place in the Premier League table – just five points behind Liverpool in sixth place.
Speaking in reaction to the victory, the £13.5 million-rated Bamford said that the thing “more important than anything” was securing a victory against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side, “no matter how” Leeds achieved it.
And, after Leeds United relayed the £35k per week 27-year-old’s comments on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many commenting on how tired Bamford appeared to be in the interview, showing how much effort he puts in for his side.
Will Bamford go to the Euros?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to say in reaction to Patrick Bamford’s post-match comments?
“He’s knackered, poor lad.”
“Always looks completely shattered. Top pro. Bielsa proved he knows best by sticking with him throughout. Never any talk of fans wanting anyone else up front.”
“Pure class. England call up imminent.”
“It’s impossible not to love this man. Our #9. Class act.”
“Total class. He always looks like he can’t believe he’s scoring at such a high level. I love his modesty.”
“You just can’t hate him can you, after all the hate that has come his way. What a man.”
All in all, it would appear as if these Leeds United fans were delighted with Bamford’s display against Southampton, and, considering the striker bagged his 13th league goal of the campaign in the fixture, is it not difficult to understand why.
