Well, besides the coaching staff and the people in charge of transfers, it sounds like Lewis Baker has at least one other fan at Leeds.
Ronaldo Vieira backs Lewis Baker to come good at Elland Road. #lufc https://t.co/Vk6G1ce4Ue— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) July 7, 2018
Midfielder Ronaldo Vieira thinks that Baker will fit in well, saying:
He’s been unbelievable.
Lewis is a good guy and as soon as he walked in all the boys were welcoming with him and talking to him.
Where we have been staying we have been doing stuff together and it’s been a great addition to the team I think.
If Baker meshing on the pitch with everyone as much as it sounds like he’s doing off the pitch, than his acquisition will be great for the club. Hopefully the Chelsea loanee will be as good as he was in The Netherlands for Leeds this year, as the club could use the help.
