Loads of Leeds United fans have been loving footage that has emerged on social media of defender Luke Ayling and his young daughter.
The defender posted a clip on his official Instagram account which has since been relayed by @barney_21 on Twitter, which shows him teaching his child what has become known as the ‘Ayling flop’ by some fans, a move he often uses to win his team free-kicks (via @FocusOnLeeds).
In the video, Ayling slightly touches his daughter on the back before she falls over a football and onto the floor. It is a move that her dad has certainly used a lot this season, indeed he wins an average of 2 fouls per game according to SofaScore.
It would be fair to say that the footage has gone down very well with a large number of Whites fans, many of whom have been reacting to it on Twitter. One even described her as ‘Neymar in the making’ – perhaps alluding to the Brazilian’s reputation for diving (talkSPORT). Here is what some had to say…
Absolutely brilliant 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🤣🤣🤣
