Luke Ayling sends emotional 11-word Instagram post to Leeds hero

Leeds United won for the third time in succession as they defeated Southampton 2-0 at St Mary’s. Patrick Bamford and Tyler Robers ensured a happy trip south for Marcelo Bielsa and his team.

It was perhaps the goal scored late on by Roberts which provided the most pleasing aspect of the game. The forward hasn’t enjoyed a tremendous season and it was great to see him notch.

Certainly, his teammates thought so and after taking to Instagram in the aftermath of last night’s game, Luke Ayling sent him a heartfelt message.

The right-back is a popular member of the squad and has enjoyed a quality maiden campaign playing top-flight football.

After Roberts had posted on social media, Ayling responded with an emotional 11-word response on Instagram.

Roberts’ future beyond the current campaign is somewhat unclear at the moment. The 22-year-old has scored twice this season and managed 27 outings – with most coming from the bench.

In recent weeks he has been linked with a move away from Elland Road and perhaps Leeds will see his exit as part of a summer shake-up.

There is little to deny that he works hard though. The 22-year-old is certainly a player who displays lots of determination and he thoroughly deserved his goal last night.

Ayling on the other hand is one of Leeds’ top performing players for the 2020/21 campaign. The right-back has gone from strength to strength and has taken to life in the top-flight with aplomb.

Whilst Ayling will remain a key figure in Bielsa’s team next season, for Roberts, he faces a nervous wait to see if he will remain at Leeds beyond the transfer window.
