Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Premier League striker Marlon Harewood believes Leeds are the ideal outfit for Patrick Bamford.
The 27-year-old has been thriving in the Whites’ team this season following their promotion from the Championship, not disappointing in front of goal.
Bamford has managed to reach double figures in English football’s top flight and there are now calls for him to be included in Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad for the upcoming European Championships.
The former Chelsea forward has undoubtedly excelled in the current campaign, with Harewood praising both the player and Leeds’ playing style, believing it has greatly benefited the man leading the line.
“He’s had a lot of experience of working with a lot of different clubs and managers, and I think he’s just found his base at Leeds,” Harewood told FFC.
“And obviously, the way they play suits him very, very well, the manager… the way they play is just a breath of fresh air really. It’s nice to watch it, it’s exciting and he’s at the top of that tree, so he’s getting service from all angles. The wingers, the midfielders, they’re looking for balls, angles.”
With the Yorkshire club likely to stay up given their points tally and the amount of fixtures left, the 2020/21 Premier League season will be one to remember for Bamford. His goals have delivered Leeds into a favourable position and put him among some of the best forwards in the division.
Marcelo Bielsa will surely be hoping that Bamford can kick on next term as Leeds perhaps aim for something higher. As for now, though, the Nottingham Forest youth product can be satisfied with his contributions, contributions that look set to keep his side in the top tier of English football.
