Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has provided the club’s fans with a positive update regarding the fitness of Diego Llorente.
The defender pulled up with what seemed to be an issue with his hamstring during the first half of Leeds’ recent home loss to Liverpool in the Premier League.
Having already missed a number of games last season due to a similar injury, the 28-year-old’s struggles with fitness could start to become a source of great concern to Marcelo Bielsa as well as the club’s supporters.
However, an unlikely source provided some good news with regards to Llorente’s current health. Indeed, while speaking on the Official Leeds United Podcast, Bamford said (quoted by The Yorkshire Evening Post) “I think after the game he was a bit emotional because I think he was probably panicking that it was something similar to last year which kept him out for a while.”
“But I saw him this morning and he seemed in good spirits. He was smiling and seemed good,” before concluding, “I think he is alright.”
