Leeds fans react on Twitter to Adam Forshaw injury update

Adam Forshaw has confirmed he’s slightly ahead of schedule with his return from a long-term injury – and some Leeds United fans on Twitter are excited by the update.

The midfielder has been unavailable with a hip problem since September and had to watch the team’s fight for promotion from the sidelines.

He went to USA to have surgery on his hip and has explained his target was to be back available for the start of next season, but perhaps he may be ahead of that schedule.

With the current campaign suspended due to the outbreak of coronavirus, it’s unclear on when this season will be completed.

“The initial plan was I’d be fit for the start of [next] season. I’m doing well, I’m probably slightly ahead of schedule but I literally am taking it day by day and week by week. Who knows when the games are going to commence again, so I can’t really put a date on it at the moment,” Forshaw told West Yorkshire Sport.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media are extremely upbeat about the update regarding Forshaw’s fitness and are delighted to hear that he’s on the mend.

There is no doubt that he would have played an important role this campaign had he been available and the central midfielder was a regular starter in the opening weeks of the season.

But the Yorkshire giants sit top of the Championship mainly without him and have looked the best team in the division alongside West Brom.

Some optimistic Leeds fans have suggested Forshaw could be back in time to help finish off this season, but in reality it’s unclear on when that will happen and it could become a possibility if it’s pushed back further than the early April date.

Here are some Leeds fans replying to Forshaw’s comments:
