Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Kemar Roofe’s goal for Leeds United against Derby County this evening.

Roofe has scored for Leeds in the 20th minute of their ongoing Championship game against Derby at Elland Road.

Jack Clarke played a delightful ball in, and the Leeds striker found the net from close range.

Former Tottenham and Everton striker Lineker has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the goal for Roofe, while referring to the recent ‘spying’ incident.

 

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa has admitted to Sky Sports that he sent someone to spy on Derby’s training.

Meanwhile, former Derby striker Darren Bent has criticised Bielsa for spying on Derby’s training ahead of this evening’s match.

Bent said on Sky Sports Football on Friday evening (7:08pm, January 11, 2019): “Unethical really. At least he has come out today and admitted that he has done that, but obviously he needs to understand that things are different in this country.

“Yeah, there might not be a law for it, but at the same time it’s just courtesy really. You want it to be a fair game, and for him to do that, I thought it was unethical.”

Leeds are playing at the moment and have been the better side in the Championship match at Elland Road so far.

Derby, though, do have some quality players, and Frank Lampard’s team are certainly going to give the Whites a run for their money in the second period.
