Bamford scores late winner off nose as Leeds beats Sheff Utd
SHEFFIELD, England — Patrick Bamford scored an 88th-minute goal off his nose to earn Leeds a 1-0 win over Sheffield United, which slipped to a third straight loss to open the Premier League season on Sunday. Bamford met a left-wing cross by Jack Harrison with an attempted header that ended up hitting his nose and finding the bottom corner. The striker was criticized for his conversion rate last season as Leeds earned promotion, but has now scored a goal in all three of the team's games on its return to the top division.
He did not elaborate on why the move to the Premier League promoted team did not work after he had agreed on a € 20 million transfer with FCB.
OM sports director Pablo Longoria agreed with Cuisance: "We didn't find anything during his check, he did everything well. He's at 100 percent and ready for action."
The 21-year-old is set to play for Olympique for the first time after the international break. The traditional club from the Cote d'Azur has initially loaned Cuisance for one season and also secured a purchase option. The information about the amount varies in the media. Sometimes there is talk of ten and sometimes 18 million euros.Michael Cuisance is under contract with FC Bayern until 2024.
Cuisance was transferred to the Isar from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer of 2019 for around twelve million euros, but was unable to prevail against the well-known competition at the German record champions.
There are a total of 16 competitive appearances for FCB. His contract there runs until 2024.
