Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink comments on Jack Harrison’s goal for Leeds

Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink has told Amazon Prime Video Sport that Jack Harrison deserves credit for being able to find the top corner after running the length of the pitch – during Leeds United’s 5-2 win over Newcastle United.

Leeds ended a dismal run of just one win in six games with a brilliant 5-2 victory, but they did go behind. Jeff Hendrick opened the scoring at the back post, but from that point in, Leeds were only going to win the match.

Goals from Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Gjanni Alioski and Harrison saw Leeds claim all three points – despite Ciaran Clark making it 2-2 at one stage. Harrison, 24, scored the pick of the goals.

With the scoreline reading 4-2, Harrison broke forward from a Newcastle corner and lashed a 25-yard effort into the top corner of Karl Darlow’s goal. Hasselbaink commented on his effort, applauding him for his goal.

“He made it look very easy,” Hasselbaink said. “To run that far, that late in the game and still have the control and to hit it this sweet. You have to hit it perfectly to get it into the top corner and he did. As soon as it comes off his foot, the goalkeeper never had the chance.”

TBR’s view – Harrison shuts up critics

Before the match, many had suggested it was time for the Manchester City loanee to be rested. However, he was handed the start, and he repaid his manager – not only scoring a worldie but also notching an assist for Rodrigo.

Harrison can do it all. Strong, quick, assists and goals, his left foot is magic. But the England Under-21 international must improve in one area – his consistency. If he can do those things, then he can become a proper, proper player.
