Burnley Teammates Wout Weghorst And Connor Roberts Clash During Nations League Game

Wout Weghorst scored a last-minute winner for the Netherlands in their Nations League clash against Wales – and Burnley teammate Connor Roberts appeared to aim a cheeky dig at the striker moments later.

Louis van Gaal's side sit pretty at the top of League A after they picked up a hard-earned 2-1 win in Wednesday night's clash at the Cardiff City stadium.

Wales thought they had grabbed a point when Rhys Norrington-Davies bagged a header in the 92nd minute to cancel out Teun Koopmeiners' opener.

But that man Weghorst scored a trademark 93rd minute winner after some great work from Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong from midfield.

You can see that goal below.

Then, just moments after the final whistle blew, Wales defender Connor Roberts approached Burnley teammate and match winner Weghorst in what appeared to be fiery clash.

As you can see in the footage below, Roberts gets right into the face of Weghorst before appearing to say, "Why don’t you do that for Burnley?”

It looks like it takes a solid few seconds for the Netherlands forward to digest what his teammate just said, but Weghorst looked far from pleased with the comment.

Here's how social media reacted to the incident.

Weghorst, who signed for Burnley from Wolfsburg in a reported £12 million deal in January, suggested last week that he will leave Turf Moor ahead of the 2022/23 Championship campaign.

In an interview with Voetbal International, the 29-year-old striker said: "We have clearly agreed in advance that I will not play in the Championship.

"The club would like to keep me and will do everything they can to return to the Premier League as soon as possible.

“For next season it is important that I can perform at a high level, also with a view to the World Cup in Qatar.”

He added: "You shouldn’t believe everything the media says. There is interest from Germany, England, and Turkey.

“First I will focus on Orange here and perform as well as possible. Then we will talk to Burnley about how things are going next.”

Thoughts on the clash between Weghorst and Roberts after the full-time whistle on Wednesday?
