The 30-year-old won the FA Cup on Sunday against Peterborough United, scoring one of Leeds’ finest goals in recent memory. The goal has gained him praise from all around the football globe.
Tony Bellew asserts that it is the greatest goal he has ever seen, while Posh manager Darren Ferguson praised the goal as “world class.” He has also received accolades from pundits like Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker.
Several of Bamford’s teammates, notably Wilfried Gnonto, Archie Grey, and Jaidon Anthony, were obviously shocked by what had happened when the goal went in.
In an interview for the most recent episode of the BBC’s “My Mate’s A Footballer Podcast,” Bamford disclosed what custodian Fynn Talley told him at full time, saying that even some of Peterborough’s players could only watch and admire.
Bamford talks about what the Posh custodian told him.
He recalled: “After I shook his hand, he kind of grinned and said, ‘Well, there wasn’t much I could do about that.'”
After the game, what if the manager told you, “Come on keeps, you have got to do better there”?
Talley only made his 14th professional appearance on Sunday, and it’s unlikely that a better goal will ever be scored past him. He was never going to get close to it.
