Bambino Pons goes viral for his commentary during Leeds United v Newcastle

Argentine commentator Juan Manuel “el bambino” Pons was on duty to cover Leeds United’s match against Newcastle for ESPN and boy was he a hoot!

The Whites put an end to their 6-game winless run and bounced back in emphatic fashion to defeat Newcastle United 5-2 at Elland Road last night.

Marcelo Bielsa named an unchanged XI from their loss against West Ham as Leeds United came back from behind to bag all 3 points at home.

As much as Leeds United fans would have enjoyed the show on display, folks watching the game on ESPN Vivo also had the pleasure of witnessing a certain South American commentator add player-specific jingles after every goal.

Check out the commentary from Bambino Pons below –
