Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie was spotted among the fans of his former club Swansea City on Sunday.
McBurnie scored the winning goal for the Blades against West Ham United on Friday night. That was his fourth Premier League goal since a summer move from Swansea.
Two days later McBurnie then made the trip down to South Wales to watch the Swans in their derby match at Cardiff City.
The Sky Sports cameras picked out the 23-year-old among the supporters in the away stand. McBurnie was alongside former teammate Joe Rodon – who is currently injured – Rodon’s brother Sam and MMA fighter Brett Johns.
What these fans think about McBurnie returning to Swansea
Some might argue that supporting your old club shows a lack of respect to your current one. Yet McBurnie had an impressive four years at the Liberty Stadium after joining from Barnsley.
The forward scored 26 goals in 62 appearances for the Welsh side before making the switch to Bramall Lane in a club record £20m move (BBC).
So what do these Blades fans think about their player travelling across the country to cheer on his former team?
Good on ya lad @oli_mcburnie. Got us the win on Friday, celebrates by enjoying himself at the football with his mates.
It’s called being normal. Anyone who has an issue with this is a right plum.

So often footballers are accused of being out of touch and not living in the real world, so it was fantastic to see @oli_mcburnie enjoying the Swansea game with his mates, basically being a normal football fan, most would be in a private box, so fair play to him
