Presenter Conor McGilligan has warned Leeds United that they must sign a new striker this winter amid Patrick Bamford’s continuing fitness issues.
Despite having a number of weeks off recently while the World Cup takes place in Qatar, the Whites striker has sadly been hit by a fresh injury setback.
The article explains how Bamford has been ‘plagued by injuries for the past 18 months’, and speaking in light of it all on the One Leeds Fan Channel, McGilligan has urged the Whites to buy an alternative in the January transfer market.
He said: “It’s tear here and tear there, and rip here and rip there. You can’t tear the individual apart, but it’s almost just from a Leeds standpoint, like, are they still not going to get a striker in? Because it’s actually comical if this happens again.
He added: “It would be staggering… I wouldn’t even be able to comprehend what’s going on if we don’t get a striker again. That would be quite shocking, astounding.”
TIF Thoughts on Patrick Bamford and Leeds United…
Sadly, it seems as though the 29-year-old just cannot be relied upon to stay fit or deliver any sort of consistent attacking threat when he does manage to get himself on the pitch for Leeds.
Interestingly enough, the club have been linked with a move for former forward Chris Wood, who could be put up for sale this winter by Newcastle United. At least that does suggest the Whites are considering their options.
