Rodrigo: The support was really important

Striker reflects after scoring late penalty.


Spanish forward Rodrigo scored a stoppage time penalty against Wolves, to secure Leeds United a more than deserved point on Saturday.

Having gone behind early in the game, the Whites kept up the pressure and with more unbelievable support from the stands, Rodrigo’s penalty claimed a point for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

“I think we deserved more from the game,” Rodrigo explained.

“I thought we played really well and dominated the game from the beginning, until the end.

“Unfortunately we conceded a goal almost from nothing. It’s true that we deserved more, but also true that a goal in the last minute and with this atmosphere, we feel like we won the game.

“I am really happy for the goal, to score the penalty, especially in that moment. The most important thing is always the team and we deserved more.

“Everyone played really really well after a bad game against Southampton, so that is the way we have to keep going for the next game.”

On the atmosphere inside the ground, Rodrigo paid tribute to the supporters who never stopped urging their team forward.

“It was amazing,” he stated.

“We were pushing on the field, and the fans felt that, so they pushed us on.

“I think that for us today the support was really really important to keep going. To maintain the faith in the win or drawing the match, and I think they helped us a lot.”
