My parents never let me have everything. My parents are very picky. They carefully consider what they want me to do. They care because they want me to only start what I can finish.

If I started something, I had to finish. Like with violin. I started when I was seven only because my best mate wanted to. I hated it and wanted to quit, but Dad made me continue, and I got to grade seven. My parents said I had to know the value of stuff and work for stuff.

Because of his rather different background and his wealthy family, Bamford has had to face many judgmental behaviors, as he described in one of his interviews:

Football is generally a working-class sport, and because of the fact I went to private school and was brought up slightly differently, people think that makes me a different person.

Patrick Bamford Quote

One of the most amusing parts of

SportMob

's article on top facts about Patrick Bamford is a look back at his most interesting and controversial quotes about himself and other players.

On his playing style:

If you don't play well, people don't watch the game, but if you have scored, your name flashes up; it doesn't matter how you've played. So as a striker, that is what I've got to try to do - make sure I score - and if you're doing that, you're also helping the team.

I've always believed that when I play up front and once I've scored, then I keep scoring.

Playing on the right isn't a role I prefer, but sometimes you've got to do your job for the team.

On his time at Nothingham Forest:

I started at Nottingham Forest cleaning toilets and scrubbing the shower floors.

A lot of people said I left Nottingham Forest for the wrong reasons, but that wasn't true. I wanted to play for a top team like Chelsea.

On his many loan moves:

When I go on loan, I don't really think about Chelsea. I just concentrate on the team I'm at and try to help them, same as when I was at MK Dons, Derby, and Middlesborough.

We've actually got a Chelsea loan WhatsApp group. The loan department set it up. Sometimes it drains your battery when everyone is messaging each other.

We have a psychologist at Chelsea who goes around seeing the loan players. He said every top, top player has a dark side. So someone like Diego Costa sometimes oversteps the mark. But you can see he plays on the edge. He said I had to develop that. It's not natural for me to be like that.

On the influence of Marcello Bielsa on his success:

I owe a lot to Marcelo because he’s the first manager who has seen me as an out-and-out number nine. Other managers have known that I can do it, but have played me as a second striker or as a right winger. Bielsa has fully trusted me and he’s made me a better player.”

On the effect of his enormous recent success:

“Earlier this season, I would be lying in bed after a game and scrolling through Twitter, not even looking for myself, and would see some abuse, My missus would say ‘just ignore it’, so I’ve got better at doing that. I’m quite laid-back so it doesn’t affect me too much and I know in my own head whether I’ve played well and should have scored or not.”
