Ronaldo Vieira snapped in away end as Leeds United defeat Barnsley

Leeds United’s former midfielder was seemingly present whilst suspended for his club Sampdoria.

Leeds United went back to the top of the Championship today with a dramatic 2-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Barnsley. 

The Whites had to work hard and wait until late to get the win with Eddie Nketiah and Mateusz Klich securing the points in the final minutes.

It was certainly an exciting game to go watch for any Leeds fans, and it seems a former player was a part of the celebrating supporters. 

Ronaldo Vieira was sold by the club under the management of Marcelo Bielsa. Andrea Radrizzani needed to balance the books after the signature of Patrick Bamford and there was interest in the England under-21 international.

As reported by The Guardian, Leeds United secured a £6.2 million sale to Italian side Sampdoria for their talented midfielder. 

He went on to have a mixed first debut season in Italy but has been a regular starter so far in Serie A this season. 


However, he was sent off in Sampdoria’s last game against Sassuolo so therefore missed their 2-0 defeat against Napoli this weekend. 

It seems he used the opportunity to head home and go watch his old team-mates in action at Oakwell. It certainly appears that way by photos doing the rounds among Leeds fans on Twitter. 

Hopefully, Vieira enjoyed watching his old friends get the win.
