Patrick Bamford has told the official Leeds United podcast that Diego Llorente is beginning to become more out of his shell behind the scenes at Elland Road – after a difficult start to life following his move from Real Sociedad.
Llorente, 27, got his first goal for the Yorkshire club since swapping La Liga side Real Sociedad for Leeds last summer – in only his tenth outing for Marcelo Bielsa’s men. He has already suffered three injuries this term.
Joining Leeds, he instantly suffered a groin injury while on Spain duty. Then, he suffered an injury against Chelsea on his debut – and eight minutes after returning from his second problem, pulled his hamstring at Newcastle.
However, he has now played eight league games in a row for Leeds – and scored a brilliant header to draw 1-1 against Liverpool. Bamford spoke of how he is a quiet character, but is beginning to settle in and become more relaxed.
