Robbie Keane Responds To Luke Ayling's Hilariously Bad Cartwheel

Wolves v Leeds at Molineux last night was ridiculously entertaining. A controversial sending off, a three goal comeback from Leeds, including one of the maddest goals you'll ever see and to top it all off, goalscorer Luke Ayling attempting to emulate the cartwheel celebration of Leeds great Robbie Keane.

We'd like to stress the word 'attempting'.

For a professional athlete to struggle so badly with the cartwheel gives us much more respect for Ireland's all-time leading goalscorer, who flawlessly cartwheeled over two hundred times in his career. That said, hats off to Ayling for committing to the whole routine - the flop, the tumble, and most importantly, the shotgun finisher.

Here's how it's done.



After the match, Ayling hilariously admitted that his cartwheels needed some work on Sky Sports.

"I tried to do the Robbie Keane but I couldn't land the cartwheel, which was a bit disappointing. I'll have to work on that."

Well, thankfully Robbie has volunteered his services. On Instagram this morning, Robbie let Ayling know he was available for cartwheel tutorials.

Robbie Keane replies to Luke Ayling

Ayling has been sharing some replies to the cartwheel from friends and teammates. This one from former Leeds player Kemar Roofe is our favourite.

It's the second consecutive win that Leeds have secured in second half injury time, which will give American manager Jesse Marsch a huge boost as he attempts to keep the Yorkshire club in the Premier League.


After the match, he revealed that the Leeds players always had his back, unlike some of the media.

"From day one [the players] accepted me. None of them made fun of my accent… unlike some of you," he was quoted as saying.

‘I'm learning more and more what the identity of Leeds is. It's gritty, it's hard, it's about never saying die. I like being the underdog, having to fight for things, having my back against the wall - that I identify with.

‘This is not just one of the best results of my career, but one of the best I’ve seen in the game.

‘Everton won last night and I didn’t care. We have the quality to control our own destiny - not just to survive this situation, but thrive.’
