Former Leeds coach Christopher has replied to Roofe’s message on Twitter and has praised the team’s performance.

The win against Norwich means that Leeds are now seventh in the Championship table with 36 points from 22 matches.

Thomas Christiansen’s side are just a point behind sixth-placed Sheffield United and are very much in the race for the playoffs this season.

Roofe has been on the books of Leeds since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Oxford United for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3 million.
