Leeds fans loved Kemar Roofe’s performance in opening weekend win over Stoke

Leeds marked new boss Marcelo Bielsa’s first competitive match in charge with a 3-1 home win over relegated side Stoke City and the Whites fans on Twitter were buzzing with the result and the performance.

Leeds announced the signing of striker Patrick Bamford from Middlesbrough last week for £7m, but the new man was an unused substitute at Elland Road as Kemar Roofe shone upfront. The 25-year-old didn’t give the Stoke defence a seconds rest and rightly received the Man of the Match award.

Roofe got his chance to impress Bielsa from the start after Leeds’ very public hunt for a striker over the summer led them to Bamford. Roofe did net 14 goals in all competitions last season so has proven he can be an effective striker and although he didn’t find the back of the net against Stoke, he certainly put the pressure on the expensive new signing.

His performance left Leeds fans on Twitter buzzing, but also worrying for their new signing’s spot in the side. Check out some of the best reactions below.
