Leeds suffer gutting Patrick Bamford injury setback
Leeds United will still be without Patrick Bamford this weekend after he suffered yet another injury setback…
What’s the latest?
Marcelo Bielsa has been without his star striker for the bulk of the 2021/22 campaign and now the head coach has revealed a new blow ahead of their Premier League clash with Newcastle United this afternoon.
“[Adam] Forshaw and [Junior] Firpo have muscular injuries and Bamford has a new injury,” he told reporters (via Sky Sports). “He has overcome his muscular issues, but now he has an issue at the bottom of his foot.”
Do Leeds need to sign a new striker in 2022?
This will come as a frustrating and gutting blow to Bielsa as he is still missing one of his most crucial players at a key point in the season.
In his absence, the Argentinian head coach has tried and tested a number of players up front, largely settling for one of Daniel James or Jack Harrison, who are wingers by trade. This has failed to be much of a success.
It has meant that Raphinha has emerged as a standout player for Bielsa as he leads the way for goals scored (eight), shots (3.1 per game), key passes (2.1 per game) and dribbles (2.3 per game), also via WhoScored.
