Leeds United: Phil Hay heaps praise on Adam Forshaw

Phil Hay has been speaking about how impressed he’s been with Adam Forshaw this season at Leeds United.

Forshaw has been experiencing a wonderful personal campaign, having played 10 times in the Premier League and that includes the last nine in a row, which will be huge for both the player and club given his injury record.

Could Bielsa be sacked by Leeds?





The 30-year old has now become the midfield general for Marcelo Bielsa due to the fact that Kalvin Phillips is out injured and not set to feature until Leeds are well into the new year, so they will know that keeping Forshaw fit and away from the treatment table is crucial to keeping their season alive.

Speaking on The Phil Hay Show, Hay himself has revealed what people inside the club have been saying about Forshaw.

“I am still very much liking the effort levels from Forshaw, the amount of ground he’s able to cover. I don’t think in any way that the system worked for him or for anybody else against City or against Arsenal, but again, it’s pleasing to see that his body is holding up to this.

“When you speak to people at the club, they’ll tell you it’s actually a long, long time since he’s had any issue with the specific groin/hip problem that was the crux of it all. So if there were going to be any issues for him, it would be new injuries or newly developed muscle strains.”

TIF Thoughts on Forshaw…

While a lot of Leeds players have been struck down by injuries, Forshaw has managed to stay fit and healthy and become a dependable fixture in Bielsa’s Leeds team, but with his contract set to expire in the summer, they may need to move quickly to secure his services as fellow Premier League clubs may well be interested in him if he can remain fit.

Hay said that he’s liking what Forshaw has done this season, which is quite something given that Leeds have not been doing many good things of late as they’re fighting relegation and have only beaten Norwich, Watford and Crystal Palace in the league this season, but for someone to stand out who had not played a first-team game since the 2019/20 season is testament to his physical and mental ability.
