Patrick Bamford labelled a ‘joke’ by Chris Sutton over Jesse Marsch criticism

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, Sutton suggested that the 29-year-old would have known where his comments might lead with Marsch under pressure.

“Keep it in the confines of the dressing room if that’s the way you feel,” Sutton said.

“He’s unburdening himself of any responsibility. I don’t like that.

“He’s not daft – he knows the implications that it will have. It will be taken as a criticism of the manager and his tactics. He’s a joke for bringing that into the public domain.

“[Bamford] doesn’t strike me as somebody who wouldn’t understand where comments like this would lead.

“He’s criticising the manager, the tactics. Things like this snowball. It’s great he’s honest – but it’s only going to cause trouble.”


Sunday’s defeat leaves Leeds 17th in the table and without a Premier League win since early November.

Michael Skubala, who has been working as coach of the club’s under-21s, has been placed in caretaker charge and will oversee the midweek encounter with Manchester United.
