Leeds fans react as video shows Lee Bowyer saluting fans at Charlton

A number of Leeds United have lauded Lee Bowyer after the Charlton Athletic boss was seen saluting the Whites supporters after Saturday’s clash at the Valley.

There was plenty of intrigue surrounding the game against the Addicks. Bowyer made 265 appearances for the Whites during one of the most exciting periods in the club’s recent history.

Saturday was the first time that the Englishman has come up against Leeds as a manager. And it was Bowyer who enjoyed the bragging rights as Charlton won 1-0.

The Whites dominated possession, and most of the game was played in Charlton’s half. But few Leeds fans appeared to have many complaints about the result as Marcelo Bielsa’s men struggled to test their opponents in the final third.

After the game, Bowyer showed that he still looks back upon his time with Leeds extremely fondly. A video emerged showing the Charlton boss heading to the away end of the Valley and giving the Leeds salute to the travelling fans.

And with Bowyer setting his team up perfectly to frustrate Leeds, some have suggested that he is the kind of manager that the Whites should potentially consider when Bielsa steps aside.

It is not a day that Leeds fans will want to worry about for some time. But with Bowyer guiding his side to promotion last season and making an excellent start to life in the Championship, it is not difficult to see why he is a name that the Whites supporters want in the frame when the time does come for Bielsa to step aside.

Here is the video of Bowyer interacting with the Leeds fans, as well as some of the reaction from the supporters on social media…
