Some Leeds United fans have been reacting to a tweet that was recently posted by The Athletic’s Phil Hay in which he relayed an update on Adam Forshaw’s fitness from Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa. 

Forshaw, who joined Leeds from Middlesbrough for £4.59m back in January 2018, has been out of action due to a hip injury since September 2019

As per The Yorkshire Evening Post, Bielsa addressed Forshaw’s fitness during his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Saturday and the Argentinian coach shared that the £2.88m-rated midfielder “has highs and lows, but up until this point he hasn’t been able to do any football practice.”

After Hay relayed Bielsa’s update on Forshaw via a tweet, plenty of Leeds supporters replied to the journalist’s post to share their thoughts on Forshaw’s fitness. 

So, what did these Leeds United fans have to say about Bielsa’s Forshaw update?

One particular Leeds supporter replied to Hay’s tweet to share that they think the Yorkshire club has missed Forshaw while he’s been out of action, while another Whites fan shared some sympathy for the midfielder and indicated that they hope to see him return to fitness soon.

Starting with an easy one what shirt number does Bamford wear for Leeds United?

Meanwhile, many of the other Leeds fans who replied to Hay’s tweet cast some doubt over the 29-year-old’s future at Elland Road. 

Have Leeds missed Forshaw?

YES

YES

NO

NO

So, it may be fair to say that the overall response to this post was not particularly positive, which may be understandable given that Bielsa’s update on the player doesn’t suggest that he is likely to return from his long-term injury any time soon.
