Leeds United fans react as Adam Forshaw is ruled out for the rest of the season

The midfielder hasn’t played since September with a troublesome hip injury.

Leeds United have been rocked with the devastating news that Adam Forshaw will require surgery on his injured hip, subsequently ruling him out for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.

The attacking midfielder started the current campaign in solid form, playing seven games in Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

He hasn’t played at all since a 1-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic back in September and it’s now been confirmed he will head to America for surgery.

Given that Leeds didn’t land a replacement for Forshaw during January it seems like a hammer blow to the club’s promotion chances.

Bielsa’s squad isn’t massive as it is and the Argentine can ill-afford any more setbacks on the injury front.

The consensus among the supporters is that the club were extremely shortsighted in not signing a potential replacement for the 28-year-old.

On Twitter the reactions are mixed. Some fans are focused on the player and him getting fit for next season; with others preferring to slam the recruitment team for their inability to sign a replacement.

Forshaw signed for Leeds in 2018 costing £4.5 million from Middlesbrough. He’s played 52 games for the club and is still awaiting his first goal for the Whites.
