Former Queens Park Rangers manager Ian Holloway spoke highly of Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe on the Drive show on talkSPORT on Friday evening (5:24pm, February 15, 2019).

Holloway believes that Roofe, who can also operate as a winger, has been sensational for Leeds so far this season, and has said that the 26-year-old is going to get better.

The former Crystal Palace and Millwall boss, who is without a managerial role at the moment, has also included Roofe among his best players in the Championship so far this season.

Holloway said about Roofe on the Drive show on talkSPORT on Friday evening (5:22pm, February 15, 2019): “I like Clarke. He has been playing on the wing, but I am going to go for Kemar Roofe. He came from Oxford.

“He has got 14 plus two assists, so I think he has been sensational for them. Playing up in the middle in a front three isn’t easy, and I think he is only going to get better.”

Frightening

Roofe has made 26 appearances in the Championship for Leeds so far this season, scoring 14 goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.

The striker is having a great campaign, and Holloway’s prediction that he is going to get better is frightening for the opposition.

Roofe joined Leeds from Oxford United in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £3 million.
