Leeds: Ben Dinnery says Luis Sinisterra injury may have been avoidable

Leeds: Ben Dinnery says Luis Sinisterra injury may have been avoidable -Leeds United News

Injury expert Ben Dinnery has made a claim on Leeds United winger Luis Sinisterra following his recent muscular scare, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Sinisterra injury

Sinisterra headed down under with Leeds for a pre-season tour of Australia days after signing from Feyenoord earlier this month.

However, he didn’t have the initial impact he would have hoped for when making his first start in the club’s final game against Crystal Palace before returning to England.

The Colombian winger had to limp off early on with a hamstring issue, with Adam Forshaw also making way in the first half with a problem.

Jesse Marsch admitted after the friendly that he was hopeful both injuries won’t prove to be serious, with Leeds facing Cagliari on Sunday in their final pre-season fixture before the new season.

The Latest: Dinnery’s comments

Dinnery, who contributes for Sky Sports, told FI that hamstring injuries tend to be avoidable and may lead to Leeds wondering if they could have done something different in the lead up to the problem.

“When looking at the data, the avoidable injuries are the non-contact ones.

“The hamstrings, muscular injuries and the like can lead a club to question whether they have done something wrong with their handling of the player’s load. That is what Jesse Marsch is insinuating there.

“It’s always a disappointment when you have these injuries because they are the ones you like to think you can avoid, although sometimes that’s not possible.

“But hamstring injuries account for around 40 per cent of all muscular problems. They aren’t going anyway, regardless of the advancements in technology.

“But he is joining a new team and was always going to push himself hard to impress. Hopefully, it is towards the lower end of the spectrum.”

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

The club have remained quiet following their pre-season game regarding the injuries, and you’d like to think that they would have provided an update if anything was serious with either Sinisterra or Forshaw.

Happy with Orta's business so far?

Yes, 100%

Marsch will more than likely be quizzed on the pair if they don’t feature against Cagliari on Sunday evening, with the Premier League opener just around the corner.

Hopefully, both players will be in the squad this weekend, and Leeds’ medical team may want to be cautious with Sinisterra, who does have history when it comes to serious injuries in recent years.
