In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Barnsley striker Oli McBurnie has revealed that he has a good relationship with now Leeds manager Paul Heckingbottom.
Heckingbottom signed the young forward on loan from Swansea when he was manager of Leeds’ Yorkshire rivals Barnsley in the January window.
However, not long after that he would leave for the Whites where he is now manager whilst McBurnie has gone about quickly settling in at Oakwell and scoring goals.
It appears, though, that the two have got some kind of relationship despite not working together for very long as McBurnie has revealed with his comments.
”I really got on well with him and he really rated me as a player.
”To be fair, Hecky rang me the day after he took the job at Leeds, just to explain what his thinking was. I would never hold that against him.”
An interesting insight into their working relationship, then, and it now remains to be seen whether the Leeds manager decides to engage in another partnership with the player when the summer window comes around.
This certainly seems as though McBurnie would welcome a move to Elland Road if it was on the table.
He’s obviously determined to keep Barnsley up but he appears determined to work his way up with pretty open comments like this.
