Ian Wright has urged Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford to follow the example of Tottenham Hotspur duo Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
The Whites number nine has been in fine fettle this term, bagging 10 goals in his first 17 appearances.
The star has largely impressed, and he is well on course to finish as the club’s top scorer this term.
That said, Bamford’s haul of 10 goals could, and perhaps should, be even higher, with the 27-year-old guilty of missing a number of clear-cut chances in 2020/21.
In the eyes of Wright, Bamford should be looking to take a leaf out of Kane and Son’s book.
He said (Leeds Live): “It is the energy and determination, for me, which you do not see a lot of now. Olivier Giroud does it. You saw it again today that Son attacks the near-post with real attention.
“This is something that Patrick Bamford, who is having a great season, needs to do more.
“He is hoping something happens for him, but he needs to show a lot more drive and determination.
“We know Kane and Son are on the same wavelength. Once Kane gets the ball, Son is off. He has got two yards on Stuart Dallas there, but he is going in there with real intention to take it. Look at his pace. Bang.”
TBR’s View – Kane and Son the perfect examples for Bamford
To reach the next level, Kane and Son’s games are definitely the ones to study for Bamford.
The pair have been brilliant for Spurs, and work their socks off to get goals for the team.
£35,000-a-week star Bamford (Spotrac) has probably surpassed expectations at this stage, but if he is to improve further, their styles are what he should seek to replicate.
