Kemar Roofe has called Izzy Brown out over his choice of footwear today at the Leeds United training ground, with the absent forward sharing a social post tearing into his teammate.
Leeds are currently preparing for tomorrow’s important clash with Sheffield United at Elland Road, which Roofe won’t be a part of due to his knee ligament injury.
However, the 26-year-old has been in and around the first-team at Thorp Arch in recent weeks and today caught Brown’s choice of footwear on his personal Instagram account:
Brown, 22, turned up at training in his UGG slippers, with Roofe quick to share an update to his strong social following.
We know Roofe will be absent tomorrow, but Brown will be hoping to be involved in some part of Marcelo Bielsa’s matchday 18 against the Blades.
The Chelsea loanee was in action for the under-23s last night against Guiseley, with the attacking midfielder scoring in a 2-2 draw with Fulham – Carlos Corberan’s side then progressed in the penalty shootout that followed.
Alongside Brown, Jamie Shackleton, Barry Douglas and Gaetano Berardi all featured last night, with those players recently featuring on the bench for Leeds’ first-team.
Brown isn’t going to be too bothered about this, with it very much a bit of training ground ‘banter’ between the players.
Revenge is something that could be on his mind, but those plans might be shelved until Leeds have taken on Sheffield United tomorrow.
This is just the latest in a long line of updates from the Leeds training ground, which are really showing the feel-good factor around the squad right now.
