Leeds fans hit out at Andrea Radrizzani over Adam Forshaw tweet
If there was one player in the Leeds United squad who deserved a slice of luck this season, it was surely Adam Forshaw.
The 30-year-old went into this campaign having not made a competitive appearance in almost two years due to injuries.
Unfortunately, along the way, there have seemingly been several false dawns for the midfielder. He appeared for the under-23s late last season, but seemed to pick up another knock in that game.
It had appeared that his most recent return may however, be different. He featured in pre-season. And he remained in the fold in the opening weeks of the season.
He even started the Carabao Cup clash with Crewe. But cruelly, it appears that Forshaw is going to have to work his way back once again.
The former Middlesbrough man was missing from the squad for Sunday’s clash with Liverpool. And Marcelo Bielsa confirmed after the game he had suffered a muscular injury.
It remains to be seen how serious the problem is. Hopefully, it is completely unrelated to his previous problems and he can get back very soon.
But the news has prompted some of the fans to hit out at Andrea Radrizzani on Twitter over a tweet he sent out in August.
The Italian was asked by a supporter about the club signing a new midfielder in the window. And he responded with the name: Adam Forshaw.
‘Comedy gold’: Leeds fans hit out at Radrizzani over Forshaw tweet
Leeds did not sign a central midfielder this summer. And it appears that the risk attached to that decision has already been highlighted.
Some felt Radrizzani put unnecessary pressure on Forshaw. Meanwhile, others feel that it was always likely to be a mistake to not sign a midfielder if the thinking was that Forshaw would fill the void.
With that in mind, here is how some of the Leeds fans have reacted to the disappointing news on Forshaw…
Remember when radz said forshaw was the answer 😂😂 https://t.co/qaNG0H28Uu

Pinning our Hopes on Forshaw and the Tweet from Radz was totally the wrong thing , putting that pressure on him was stupid , this one injury knocks the balance of the squad , A nice run of games coming to boost confidence #lufc #forshaw

Imagine trying to sign De Paul, Gallagher, Cuisance, O’Brien and Herrera only to announce ‘we don’t need another midfielder because Forshaw will be back’.
