Roberts and Weghorst fought together last season to keep Burnley. Without result. The Clarets were relegated from the Premier League. That was still high for Roberts, it turned out Wednesday evening.
“Why didn’t you do this for Burnley?” he sneered at the Dutchman. Weghorst seems to react coolly. He yelled something back to Connor, but what exactly isn’t quite clear.
It is by no means certain whether the two footballers will still be teammates next season. Weghorst is allowed to leave Burnley after the relegation. The striker also does not want to play in the Championship.
