Injured Leeds midfielder Adam Forshaw posts Instagram message
Leeds United’s Adam Forshaw has shared on Instagram that he’s now recovering from his injury and he’s confidently predicted that his team will go on to achieve promotion to the Premier League.
The 28-year-old midfielder hasn’t played for the Whites since September through injury and he recently had the club confirm that his season is over.
They confirmed (official website) on Wednesday that he’s travelling to the US to undergo hip surgery and the plan is to get him back for pre-season for the start of the next campaign.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team sit second in the Championship table as it stands chasing automatic promotion, but are only above third-placed Fulham on goal difference and there is a chasing pack just behind.
The Whites are finally trying to get themselves back to the top-flight and face a real battle to so.
Forshaw posted on social media that he believes Premier League football will be back at Elland Road next season.
“Toughest time of my career but I’m on the mend now. Thank you for all the messages. Confident I’ll see you all in the Premier League,” Forshaw wrote on his official Instagram account.
There is no doubt that Forshaw’s absence for the majority of this campaign has hurt them, as he’s a central midfielder with a tremendous work-rate and he suits Bielsa’s style well.
But the long-term absence in order to resolve his injury is required and he can now do no more than the supporters in watching to see if Leeds do obtain promotion.
Kalvin Phillips is one midfielder essential to the rest of the campaign and the difference he’s made since returning from suspension proves that.
With no Forshaw to lean on in the squad, it means Mateusz Klich will have to continue running himself into the ground and perhaps it’s time to see more of Jamie Shackleton.
