Jamaican international football player Leon Bailey set his mark in the EPL today after coming off the bench to set up one goal and later scoring his first goal for Aston Villa in their 3-0 victory over Everton today. After scoring, Bailey took off his jersey to join Raheem Sterling in tribute to Twitch streamer Steffie Gregg who is also a Jamaican and passed away recently.
After the match, in his first post-match interview for the club, Leon stated, “It’s such a great feeling – words can’t even explain it!” He went on to explain how great it felt hearing the fans chant his name, detailing that he did it for them and also his family who was there watching the match.
