Leeds United will be hoping they can improve on last term’s close shave with Premier League promotion in the forthcoming season.
They’ll surely be hoping to get off to a blistering start, but they’ll have to do it without the help of Kemar Roofe.
The Elland Road favourite has picked up an injury that is expected to leave him out of action for approximately four weeks.
And after the news was confirmed the popular striker took to Instagram to post a picture with Patrick Bamford and a mystery guest.
The post was simply captioned: “Front 3 pending because of another setback #positivethinking #LUFC #MOT.”

The intensity of Marcelo Bielsa’s philosophy is widely recognised for its gruelling and uncompromising nature, and when it works it really works.
You need only look at how close Leeds came to clinching promotion last season to appreciate that.
With such a vital player already injured before the start of the campaign, however, some might be questioning the long-term effectiveness of Bielsa’s style.
