Weston McKennie has told a hilarious story in a short video posted on Men In Blazers’ Twitter where Leeds United teammate Brenden Aaronson ignored him – despite McKennie playing by himself behind him on the golf course.

With Tyler Adams undergoing rehab on a hamstring operation, USA duo McKennie and Aaronson have been regulars in a struggling Leeds side. They go up against some of their American teammates this Saturday, against Fulham.

Indeed, Antonee Robinson and Tim Ream were both parts of USA’s World Cup squad in Qatar alongside the Leeds trio. This week ahead of the clash, Men In Blazers sat down with the Leeds duo, and the two Fulham players.

Aaronson, but mostly McKennie shared a story in which Aaronson had two of his friends over from America and they were out on the golf course. McKennie was playing alone behind them – but Aaronson did not invite him to join.

Aaronson started: “There’s a thing going on at the club where I’m getting backlash, I had my friends come out from America. I wanted to just go golfing with them.” McKennie interjects: “Happens to be, we show up at the same time.

“His friends tee off in front of me. I’m in the buggy by myself, playing by myself. It’s only three of them and instead of saying, hey Wes, come make it four with us, he let me golf by myself.” Aaronson defends himself: “I made it clear”.

Hopefully, the chemistry is working on the pitch rather than the golf course when Leeds take on Ream, Robinson and Fulham this weekend. Having suffered two heavy defeats, Leeds really need to avoid defeat down in London.

McKennie is more than likely to resume in the middle of the park with Leeds lacking in options, given the injury to Adams. But Aaronson’s position is more under threat, with Willy Gnonto surely going to return to the starting XI.
