Leeds: Jay Mooney reacts to Tyler Roberts injury

Leeds: Jay Mooney reacts to Tyler Roberts injury -Leeds United News

Leeds United’s communications chief Jay Mooney has been reacting to Tyler Roberts’ injury on Twitter.

The Lowdown: Roberts out for the season

The 23-year-old was named on the bench in Jesse Marsch’s first game as manager against Leicester City and came on with 14 minutes remaining.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

No, we are finished!

Unfortunately, the Welshman suffered a hamstring injury shortly after coming on but didn’t come off despite the fact he was seriously struggling.

Late Monday night, it was confirmed by the Whites that Roberts has undergone surgery on a ruptured hamstring tendon which is set to keep him out of action for three months.

The Latest: Mooney reacts

The club’s official Twitter post received plenty of interaction on Monday evening, including from head of communications Mooney.

He replied using his personal account, labelling it as ‘sad news’.

“Sad news but Tyler will come back fighting. Unbelievably good soul, always happy to go the extra mile for the club.”

The Verdict: Unfortunate

Roberts has made just seven Premier League starts this season, contributing to two goals in 974 minutes of action.

He may have been in line to feature more regularly under Marsch, though, due to the American’s 4-2-2-2 system, so the injury update is extremely unfortunate for the player ahead of 11 make or break fixtures starting against Aston Villa on Thursday.

The good news for Marsch is that Patrick Bamford is set to make a return after a lengthy period out, so it is a case of one in and one out on the treatment table at Thorp Arch.
