Leeds United striker Kemar Roofe largely set the Championship on fire in the 2018/19 campaign as he chipped in with 15 goals and two assists under the charge of manager Marcelo Bielsa.

It was a disappointing end to the year for the 26-year-old though as we failed in our bid for Wembley in the Play-Off Semi-Finals, but despite that frustration, there were certainly positives to take from the year.

26-year-old Roofe may have had a better season had injury not got in the way given the barren run he had on a goalscoring front in the second half of the season, and the player took to social media to send the fans a message last week.

The Tweet is innocuous enough for me, but some fans certainly read into it and took it as an indication as to his own personal future next year, believing it to be his goodbye from the club.

  • Can’t blame him for wanting to play at a higher level. But let’s not jump to conclusions. Ok.. he never said he was staying but he didn’t say he was leaving either. Opening contract talks next week. Let’s see what happens then

  • He’d be silly not to give it another go, we were so close. With better luck and less injuries we’d have been up.

  • Doesn’t say anything, other than about last season….if you want to put a negative spin on anything you can………read it as you want ……..he could have been told he’s not wanted/ he could have been told his injury is worse than we knew/ he could have decided to leave/ or maybe he’s saying he had a good season which was ultimately not the result he wanted, move on to next season.

    What he didn’t say was goodbye see you if you get promoted!!!!???????!!!!!!!

    • Follow up Tweet as covered today put a different perspective on it. Again I thought it was pretty innocuous and didn’t read it that way myself, but plenty did.
