Kalvin Phillips posts on Instagram after Leeds confirm knee injury

Kalvin Phillips has posted on Instagram after Marcelo Bielsa confirmed during his pre-Barnsley press conference that the Leeds United midfielder had suffered a season-ending knee injury.

Phillips, 24, has been a crucial part of the Leeds side during the Whites’ charge for promotion. He has played 37 of Leeds’ 43 fixtures, missing four of the other six through suspension. Now, he is set to be absent for the last three.

Leeds have almost secured promotion from the Championship, with the Whites six points ahead of Brentford who remain in third place. Just three games are left, and Leeds could return to the top tier with a win on Thursday.

But they will be without Phillips who has been ruled out for upto a month with the problem, and the midfielder has posted on Instagram after it was confirmed he had been sidelined through a knee injury.

 

It is expected that Ben White will move into central midfield, and be replaced by Gaetano Berardi in the middle of the defence alongside captain Liam Cooper. The Whites will be hoping they can still secure a win over Barnsley.

Plenty of Leeds teammates – current and old players – responded to Phillips’ Instagram – with the majority posting a serious of emojis in response to Phillips’ Instagram post.
