Richard Keys and Andy Gray react to wild Leeds United scenes after Premier League survival secured
Richard Keys and Andy Gray were both blown away by the Leeds United dressing room after the huge win over Brentford secured Premier League safety.
The beIN Sports duo were delighted for the Whites, who will play Premier League football for a third consecutive season with Burnley dropping into the Championship.
The Whites squad were going wild in the dressing room, dancing, cheering and drinking just as they simply deserved to do after a huge effort in the capital.
Shared on the beIN Sports Twitter account, Keys started off the reaction as wild dressing room clips filtered back to their studio after the full-time whistle.
“This is Leeds United’s dressing room at Brentford,” he said. “2-1 winners in West London today and they will play Premier League football next season.”
Gray was also blown away: “I have to say I’m pleased, nothing against Burnley, but I’m pleased.
“I think they’re a club that wallowed for too long in the lower reaches of football, I’d hate to have seen they drop back after such a short time back.”
Every last one of those players deserve huge credit and we hope they can celebrate long into the night.
Jesse Marsch deserves huge credit too for coming into a scenario where huge pressure was on him not only on the pitch but also for replacing Marcelo Bielsa who was a hero at Elland Road.
The fans have also backed the club immensely as well as asking questions of Andrea Radrizzani, who will hopefully have learned his lesson after not spending big this season.
Gray summed it up perfectly and we are all thankful for Burnley dropping points and going into the Championship themselves, they certainly will not be missed.
All eyes are now on next season, but there are some big weeks ahead where we hopefully see some transfer movement and Kalvin Phillips signing on for a new bumper contract.
What a day, we already can’t wait for next season to return – bring it on.
