Leeds fans react as club delivers update on Liam Cooper injury

Liam Cooper suffered another injury on Saturday afternoon as the Leeds United captain limped off in the second half of the 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers – and Leeds fans are concerned after the club’s latest update on the defender.

Cooper, 28, only returned from a groin injury last month – which saw him miss the league games against Millwall, Birmingham City and Preston. He came on as a sub against Sheffield Wednesday, before starting in the wins over QPR and Blackburn.

However, Cooper has been removed from the Scotland squad due to the injury, which saw him suffer a similar groin injury and replaced in the 72nd minute by Gaetano Berardi on Saturday. Leeds kept their impressive home form up with another win.

Leeds posted an update on their official website on Monday morning, confirming that scans have shown Cooper has suffered a small tear in his groin. The update also states that the club are hopeful he will be fit for the fixtures after the break.

Cooper was set to add to his two Scotland caps as his country take on Cyprus away from home, before returning to Scotland to take on Kazakhstan at Hampden Park. Instead, he will remain in Yorkshire, which could be seen as a boost by many.

However, many Leeds fans are pessimistic following the report and do not believe that their star defender will be fit by the time the break is finished. Leeds take on newly-promoted Luton Town after the break at Kenilworth Road.
