Ian Wright was blown away by the “perfect” performance of Leeds United forward Patrick Bamford against Leicester City on Sunday.
Bamford scored one and assisted two as the Whites continued their winning run with an impressive 3-1 victory at the King Power Stadium.
Wright admitted that he admires the 27-year-old massively after they worked together during their time with MK Dons.
Speaking on his podcast Wrighty’s House on Spotify, Wright singled out Bamford for the best finish in the Premier League over the weekend.
“Patrick’s getting flowers right now, he’s somebody that I admire greatly,” he said.
“I always take credit for him and Dele, whatever they do. I used to do a lot of finishing with Patrick Bamford because his left foot is so good. When I saw the way he finished that one, it was so good.
“When he hit it, it just kept moving away from Kasper, it was so good. It was just beautiful, crisp and lovely. It was perfect.
“For him to square it to him, and finish the game, it was brilliant execution.”
Bamford was superb on Sunday, but there are doubts over whether he will be available for tonight’s game against Everton.
The 27-year-old was pictured limping after the Leicester game, and he admitted that it was just a dead leg – with Marcelo Bielsa sharing no further updates.
With the England squad coming up in March, and the EUROs this summer, Bamford will be relishing the chance to outshine one of his competitors in Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Wright has always been a massive fan of Bamford, and there aren’t many better to have as mentors in the Premier League than the former Arsenal man.
