Alan Shearer awestruck of Leeds striker Patrick Bamford

Alan Shearer has been left awestruck of Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford this season in the Premier League.

The Whites welcomed Sheffield United to West Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon, and made it hard for themselves in the end, only winning 2-1 despite dominating.

Shearer, the all-time goalscorer in the Premier League, shared his admiration for Bamford after his “magnificent” season at Elland Road.

Shearer spoke to the Whites talisman for Amazon Prime Sports Video before the clash with Sheffield United and was very congratulatory.

“You’re having a magnificent season, so congratulations on that,” he said.

“In the past, you’ve had people had a go at you. That’s one of the things I admire about you, you’re not afraid to miss.”


Bamford is never one to let things get to him, and his response to being snubbed by Gareth Southgate and England was the perfect proof of that.

Marcelo Bielsa has highlighted what happens when you keep faith in the striker, and his goal-scoring for fun should have been rewarded.

It was a quiet afternoon for Bamford in the final third against the Blades though, with most of the play going through both wingers and Tyler Roberts, with even Phil Jagielka more danger; a joke of course.

You know you’re doing something right when Shearer is a clear member of your fan club, and Bamford needs to keep shining bright at Elland Road.
