Supporters of Leeds United have recently aired their delight following an injury update on Spanish central defender Diego Llorente.

According to a tweet from the BBC journalist Adam Pope, the defender has recovered from the groin injury which has kept him sidelined for the Whites.

The tweet from the journalist also carried quotes from Marcelo Bielsa in which the Argentine manager explained that the 27-year-old defender is “healthy and in condition to play”.

However, Bielsa did admit that Llorente may not be stepping straight into the first team because “the ideal thing would be for him to play in the under-23s before first-team football as it has been a while”.

After this tweet was relayed to Leeds fans, lots of them flocked to it to air their delight regarding the update.
