#PLStories- Patrick Bamford sides with Gary Lineker in twitter feud #LUFC

Patrick Bamford

Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has shown his support for Gary Lineker after the Match of the Day presenter came under fire on Twitter for his political tweets. Lineker vented his frustration to his 8.2 million followers after he was told footballers should ‘stop talking politics’, an opinion he firmly opposes. Bamford has been undertaking a project of his own away from football in recent months, as he looks to help combat climate change, which has prompted him to give an opinion of his own on whether footballers should just stick to their day job.

Patrick Bamford said:  said: “It annoys me. I saw it on Twitter yesterday, someone had a go at Gary Lineker for talking about politics, saying he should talk about football only because ‘that’s what you’re good at’ and ‘you shouldn’t have an opinion on this’. That’s nonsense because, if everyone just spoke about the industry they were in, one, life would be boring, and two, we’d just never get anywhere, so I totally disagree with that.”
