Lots of Leeds United fans have flocked to Adam Pope’s latest tweet about Adam Forshaw.
Pope recently tweeted an image of Forshaw, confirming that the midfielder is now set to play for the Leeds United Under-23s side against the Aston Villa Under-23s outfit on Friday night, with Mark Jackson’s men needing just a single point to win the title.
This comes after Forshaw had played for the Whites’ Under-23s team against York City in a friendly. It was described as his first step towards recovery from a persistent hip injury.
Can Forshaw play for Leeds this season?
Pope’s tweet about the midfielder drew the attention of many Leeds fans, who made their views clear about it.
What did Leeds fans make of the Forshaw update?
“Good luck to the lad, been through the mill these last two years, hope this is the start of his return to full fitness.“
“Get in sausage.”
“So happy to see him back. Whether for Leeds in the future or another club, always good to see a player recover and hopefully he can stay injury-free and show his quality.“
Forshaw last played for Leeds back in the Championship in the club’s 1-0 loss to Charlton Athletic in September 2019. The Englishman has undergone five separate surgical procedures prior to featuring for 60 minutes against York (as per Leeds Live).
It has been reported that Forshaw is still hoping to play a part in the remainder of the campaign for Leeds, but the club is cautious about his fitness.
“Great news for Adam. The lad has been through it.“
“Fingers crossed for Adam, a player who deserves some good luck. It’s long overdue.”
A lot of these Leeds fans seem very happy about Forshaw’s potential return to fitness and they are making their opinions clear about it.
The 29-year-old will add more depth to the midfield, especially since Jamie Shackleton and Mateusz Klich are the only two fit central midfield options for Marcelo Bielsa right now. So his potential return might be a boost for the Whites.
