Leeds United journalist Beren Cross has shared a new update on the fitness of Leeds midfielder Adam Forshaw.
This comes after Cross recently took part in a Q&A session for Leeds Live to answer numerous questions concerning the Yorkshire club.
After being asked if there was any news on the injured midfielder, Cross shared this latest update. (16.50, 08/07/20)
He said: ‘Forshaw was at the Luton match last week. He sat in the West Stand and watched. Was moving well and in good spirits. Still expected to be back in full training before the start of next season, whenever that is.’
According to the official Leeds website, Forshaw ‘first injured the joint between his hip and groin in the pre-season friendly at Cagliari but was able to continue playing until our Sky Bet Championship game with Charlton Athletic in September when the injury unfortunately worsened.’
Back in February, the club announced that Forshaw had been sent to Colorado in the United States to work with surgeon Dr Marc Philippon who is ‘known for performing joint preservation techniques utilising arthroscopic hip surgery to treat painful joint injury in high-level athletes who constantly use powerful hip rotation.’
Have Leeds missed Forshaw this season?
The 28-year-old made just eight appearances for the Yorkshire club this season before going to Colorado to work on his hip injury.
It’s good to hear that Forshaw is still watching Leeds matches even while he is out injured. Perhaps if he didn’t make any appearances for Leeds in the Championship after first sustaining the injury back in their pre-season match, though, he wouldn’t have then made the injury worse.
However, it’s great to hear that the central-midfielder is still in good spirits and expected to be back in training before the start of next season.
The best thing Forshaw can do now is continue to support his side as they aim to secure promotion to the Premier League and finalise his recovery from injury.
