Leeds United have reached out to former player Ronaldo Vieira to appear in a tribute video for the NHS.
On Twitter, the Whites uploaded a montage of footballers, sportsmen and other Leeds-related figures clapping in acknowledgement of the UK’s carers during the global health crisis.
And Vieira, who was sold to Sampdoria in Italy for £7 million almost two years ago, was among the players to make an appearance.
Here’s how Leeds fans on social media reacted to the 22-year-old’s cameo.
The Bissau-born star had a tough first year in Serie A, starting only six league games last season.
But Vieira was a lot more active during the 2019-20 campaign and 17 of his 21 appearances were from the start, indicating that he acclimatised to life in Italy’s top flight.
He was a very popular figure among Leeds fans during his two full seasons in the Whites’ senior set-up, though he never got the chance to play under Marcelo Bielsa.
