#PremierLeagueStories – #PatrickBamford admits he had a point to prove when he came to Leeds after multiple failed stints in premier league #LUFC

Patrick Bamford

Patrick Bamford has given a new interview reflecting on his hat-trick against Aston Villa, his first for Leeds, and starting the Premier League season with six goals in six games. The 27-year-old had only scored one goal in 27 previous Premier League appearances across stints with Burnley, Norwich, Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace. But the vast majority of those appearances came as short cameos as a late substitute, and he wasn’t the first-choice striker for any of those clubs. In stark contrast, he has the trust of Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds and has retained his place as the centre-forward, even after the arrival of club record signing Rodrigo Moreno from Valencia this summer.

Patrick Bamford said “Of course I had a point to prove, I played a bit-part, minutes here and there, when I played in the Premier League before and never really got a proper chance at it. There was probably a lot of people that doubted me but, more than anything, proving it to myself [was important]. I always knew I could play at this level, so it was more for me to prove to myself that I can do well here.”
