Leeds star Patrick Bamford reveals he was SICK after running himself into ground during Liverpool draw

PATRICK BAMFORD revealed he was SICK during Leeds’ draw with Liverpool.

After running himself into the ground, the Whites striker threw up in the second half before Diego Llorente’s late equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Elland Road. 

Bamford, 27, said: “I was actually sick in my mouth on the pitch when I was blowing.

“I think it was just after I hit the bar and they broke on a counter-attack. 

“I sprinted from their box to ours, nothing came of it, Illan Meslier got the ball and we started attacking again.

“I ran all the way back up the pitch and we just kept the ball and were passing it around.

"I thought I was going to burp, and I was sick in my mouth.

“I spat it out and for the rest of the game, I had the taste of sick in my mouth.”

And Bamford was left horrified when he heard Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa shouting for the England hopeful to run even more just as he wanted to take a breather for a drink.

The striker, who has 14 goals this season, added: “I was trying to stay away because after I did that run, I heard him shout ‘Patrick, move’ and I thought ‘Oh, my God!”

Having beaten runaway leaders Manchester City with 10 men the week before, Bamford was left disappointed to only claim a point against the reigning champs. 

He told the Official Leeds United Podcast: “I remember me and Kalvin (Phillps) on the walk in the morning, we were talking and I said if we can get after them, we can win this.

“I was really frustrated after the game that we had not won and in the second half we really had them up against the wall. It was frustrating.”
