Updates on Adam Forshaw’s injury have been few and far between.
The midfielder won’t be appearing for Leeds again this season.
Forshaw will be jetted out to Colorado this week, and he will undergo a procedure that will put him out of action at least until the end of this campaign.
Of course, the 28-year-old will be a big miss from now until the end of the campaign, but we can’t help but feel that Leeds haven’t been on the ball with this issue that has been apparent since pre-season.
So, why on earth has it taken over six months for the club to send Forshaw to have surgery?
Ok, they thought he might be able to play through it as he appeared in a few games early in the season, but it very quickly became apparent that this wasn’t an injury that could quickly be fixed.
Leeds’ statement on the matter says that they consulted multiple experts before making this choice, but why weren’t they in contact with these people sooner?
The operation will mean Forshaw is out for a while, but he’s expected to be back for pre-season, which is only a four months away.
If Leeds had made this call back in October when the issue caused him to start missing games then he’d be on his way back by now, but as Hay has stated, the club were hesitating to make the call, and that’s cost them in the end.
