Tyler Roberts sounded excited to be going back to West Brom, even though it is as an opposing player.
| "It's not a time for friends" We catch up with @official_tyro as he discusses going back to his former club tomorrow— Leeds United (@LUFC) November 9, 2018
Roberts told the club’s official website:
How are you feeling going back to West Brom?
I’m excited, obviously, it’s going to be a bit strange being back at the club that I grew up, but I want to get the win, and I’m hungry to score a goal.
Is there a lot of people behind the scenes from your time?
Yeah, obviously there’s still a lot of Academy staff, Darren Moore is the manager who was my U23s manager, so a lot of people I know are still there, it’ll be nice to see them, but it’s not a time for friends. It’s a rivalry.
Of course, Roberts isn’t the only one who will be seeing old friends, as a lot of Leeds players will be seeing Kyle Bartley as well.
Anyway, no friends for 90 minutes today, right?
