Leeds United fan will get tattoo of a dog playing the guitar after Patrick Bamford viral tweet
A Leeds United fan is set to stay true to his word and get a tattoo of a dog playing the guitar - following a Twitter reply from his hero Patrick Bamford.
Patrick Baker, 31, is a huge Leeds United fan living in Cardiff.
In January, Patrick put out a tweet promising that if the Whites finished in the top 10 of the Premier League, he would get a tattoo of Patrick Bamford s favourite animal playing his favourite instrument.
True to his word and after the completion of the Premier League, call centre worker Patrick tweeted Patrick Bamford again - tagging popular LUFC magazine The Square Ball - to find out the answers to his questions.
The tweet read: "Do any fans of @TheSquareBall know what Patrick Bamford's favourite animal and favourite instrument are?
"I may have (did) put out a tweet around January that if we finished in the top 10 I'd get a tattoo of the animal playing the instrument."
Just hours later, Bamford humorously replied with a picture of him and a guitar and his favourite dog.
Patrick is now due to book in for the tattoo and was thrilled at the response to his viral tweet.
Speaking to the YEP on Monday, Patrick said: "I'd been wanting a new tattoo for a while and was thinking of something related to Leeds United.
"In January 2021 I started to believe we could finish in the top 10 so I pin tweeted "If Leeds finish in the top 10 I'll get a tattoo of Patrick Bamford's favourite animal playing his favourite instrument".
"After this incredible season we of course finished 9th so I have to stick to my word and today on a whim I tweeted & tagged in The Square Ball."
Patrick said the response had been amazing.
He added: "I got lots of likes, RTs, and wild suggestions of various creative animal and instrument combinations followed.
"Then the Lord himself replied with a photo of his guitar and his Labradoodle."
Bamford's response quickly spread across Twitter and has since gone viral, with thousands of shares in less than an hour.
