Leeds fans react to Forshaw injury blow

Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to the latest squad update, as Adam Forshaw is set to miss around six weeks with an ankle injury.

According to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post, Forshaw will require surgery to repair some damaged ankle ligaments.

Marcelo Bielsa confirmed the injury in his press conference on Friday, a major blow to his first team just days before the season opener.

Leeds seem to have an incredible knack of signing injured players, and the all action midfielder missed considerable time at the end of last season with a calf injury.

This injury might not be such a major issue if the club hadn’t just sold Ronaldo Vieira to Sampdoria, but Bielsa is now dangerously short of options in midfield.

Kalvin Phillips and Eunan O’Kane took plenty of flak for their performances last season, and fans certainly won’t want another season of the duo as first choice.

Loads of fans have been giving their verdict on the injury blow, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
