Leeds United's Patrick Bamford has his say on THAT Marcelo Bielsa viral video

Have your say

Leeds United's Patrick Bamford just loves scoring volleys.

The 25-year-old made his comeback from injury on Friday evening as he completed 45 minutes of the Whites Under-23s defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League Cup.

Bamford though hit the headlines for different reasons a few weeks ago as a training ground video went viral on social media from Thorp Arch.

United's marquee summer signing could be seen scoring a lovely volley which wouldn't have looked out of place at the highest of levels but what happened next was what really made the clip.

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa celebrated the goal by jogging across the training pitch to embrace his man - and now Bamford has finally given his thoughts on the video.

"It was a nice pass from Kalvin [Phillips] and it was just one of those that sometimes it comes off and sometimes it doesn't," Bamford told LUTV.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has his say on Patrick Bamford video
"I like to think that I'm quite good at doing those volleys so it was nice.

"There was a ball today [against Newcastle] that came over the top. I wanted to do it again but it got lost in the light and I ended up just not knowing what to do.

"I think the thing that made it go viral was obviously - sometimes you see good goals on Instagram or Twitter and you're like 'Yeah, nice. Good goal' and they do the rounds a little bit - the fact that the gaffer came up and gave me a hug.

"Being who he is and how much everyone respects him, I think that's what made it pop off."
