Agbonlahor throws strop on Twitter, says he's not going into work after huge Leeds win
Gabriel Agbonlahor has thrown his toys out of the pram after watching Leeds United beat Newcastle 5-2 at Elland Road on Wednesday night.
Leeds’ second-half performance is arguably the best they have played all season as the Whites came from 1-0 behind to score four goals in the final 30 minutes.
Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Ezgjan Alioski and Jack Harrison were all on the scoresheet for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
One of Bielsa’s biggest critics has been ex-Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor, who now regularly offers his controversial views to talkSPORT.
However, when talkSPORT host Adrian Durham told him that they would be talking a lot about Leeds on Thursday, Agbonlahor said that he’s not going into work.
He wrote on his personal Twitter account: “I’m not coming in. Get a replacement.”
Obvious how this is going to go
Agbonlahor seems like quite a fickle pundit.
He doesn’t mind talking trash about a club if they’re doing bad but as soon as they do something good, he can’t respond.
Leeds blew Villa away earlier this season and still, Agbonlahor tries his best to mock Bielsa and the club as a whole.
But we’re just past the point of getting wound up by the talkSPORT pundit now. It’s so obvious he says what he says just to get a reaction.
He knows Leeds have a massive fanbase and he knows they will come at him if he says anything negative about them.
At this point, they might if he says anything positive too simply because it’s a massive shock.
Leeds have had a poor few weeks but that win against Newcastle felt like it could be a turning point ahead of the congested fixture schedule around Christmas and the New Year.
In the coming weeks, the Whites play Manchester United, Burnley, West Brom and Tottenham.
We would be disappointed if they don’t win at least six points in those four matches.
In other Leeds United news, fans blasted this one player for being “horrific for weeks” in the win against Newcastle.
