'I'm told’: Journalist shares what he's heard about Sinesterra’s and Forshaw’s injury problems at Leeds
“Obviously, they are back in Leeds now and I’m told they will do a full assessment with them at Thorp Arch this week. Fingers crossed, both will be able to resume training before too long,” he added.
Thornton reports that Sinisterra could be out for ‘a few weeks’, although the severity of his hamstring issue has yet to be discovered.
Meanwhile, Adam Forshaw ‘tweaked his knee’, according to Jesse Marsch, and will be assessed at Leeds’ training ground this week.
Leeds can’t afford another injury-riddled season
Marcelo Bielsa infamously enjoyed managing a small squad at Leeds, and when the injuries started to pile up last season, he was forced to introduce more and more academy prospects to fill the gaps.
This led to Leeds fighting for Premier League survival, and eventually Bielsa losing his job, with Jesse Marsch keeping the Whites up on the final day of the season.
Forshaw missed the end of last season with a fractured kneecap, and if this knock has aggravated that injury again, Marsch won’t want to rush the experienced midfielder back.
