Joe Gelhardt has labelled Cody Drameh the GOAT, with the forward one of several players to reply to the Leeds United right-back’s latest Instagram post.
Drameh produced another outstanding performance on Monday as Leeds’s under-23s beat Newcastle 2-1 at Thorp Arch.
The side included first-team players such as Robin Koch, Gaetano Berardi, Ian Poveda and Jamie Shackleton. But it was Drameh who received many of the plaudits from fans on social media after the win.
And it appears that many of his teammates feel similarly about the 19-year-old.
Drameh took to Instagram to comment on the victory. He simply posted: ‘Tough win, 4 games to go’.
And in response, the likes of Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood and Stuart McKinstry lauded the former Fulham starlet.
There was also messages from Dani van den Heuvel, Elia Caprile and Manchester United youngster Omari Forson amongst others…
The most telling praise arguably came from Gelhardt. Many fans would surely argue that the attacker has been the player of the season for Mark Jackson’s side.
His form has seen Marcelo Bielsa promote him to the first-team bench on a number of occasions lately.
So for Gelhardt to praise Drameh so highly certainly says a lot. It would certainly be little surprise to see the right-back follow his teammate into Bielsa’s thinking at some stage in the very near future.
