Sol Bamba was a rock when on loan from Palermo for the 2015 portion of the 2014/15 Championship season. After his loan deal was up, Leeds fans were clamouring for the club to sign the powerfull-built Ivorian centreback.
This year Bamba was made club captain by former head coach Uve Rosler but has recently been out of the team recovering from a fractured toe. Now fit and in contention for the cluster of games traditional at the Christmas period, Bamba spoke to TV Yorkshire where he spoke about a number of things including the competition for places, the mood at the club, his feelings behind his impromptu fan sing-a-long and just how he views the importance of the Leeds United fan base.
Three things from Sol Bamba
On the current form of the club and the next steps: “We are on a good run and we want that to carry on.”
When asked about the competition for places in the team: “Oh yeah, I think that’s why we got a good result because, like you said, [there’s] competition for places…that’s what football is about.”
When it was brought up about his singing with the fans and the possibility of a Christmas #1 single: “[laughs]Yeah, well, I think it’s far from it but obviously it was a good moment and obviously I enjoy it. The fans have been brilliant to me since I came in the club.”
