The Ivorian was once again a colossus at the back for Leeds this afternoon.
Leeds United are now on top form and are flying up the table under Neil Redfearn. It has taken him some time to get his perfect team together. That process has seen him bring in the likes of Luke Murphy, Scott Wootton and Steve Morison from the cold but it has also seen him dip into the transfer market.
One of his new arrivals is former Leicester City defender Sol Bamba. The Ivorian has been a rock at the back since arriving at the club from Palermo on loan until the end of the season.
Goals have been hard to get against Leeds in recent times and there is no doubt that the presence of Bamba has been a major contributory factor in that recent form.
The commanding presence of the player allied with his Championship experience has seen him become a vital member of the team and with him at the back they should continue to march up the Championship table.
The Leeds fans, they agree. Here is a selection of Tweets on the subject of Bamba's fantastic performance against Millwall this afternoon, as he continues to become something of a cult hero:
#lufc I saw Sol Bamba rise to meet a header and thundered into there player..what a presence— Tony Hannan (@tonyhannan) February 14, 2015
Sol Bamba... The father figure of that side without a doubt! Such a presence about the guy! #LUFC— Xander Wilkinson (@Xander0894) February 14, 2015
Also, Sol Bamba is a revelation. Commanded the back four, essentially a brick wall#lufc— GirlsKnowFootballToo (@GKFT) February 14, 2015
Sol Bamba was solid, really like his presence. Midfield outstanding today, Taylor was the best I have seen him. Morison - it will happen— Andy Mason (@andyjmason) February 14, 2015
Sol Bamba is an absolute rock. Only conceded 2 goals in the 5 games we've played since he came in, winning 4. #LUFC— Alex Bastin (@Alex43LUFC) February 14, 2015
