The Lowdown: Bamford’s injuries continue
A fresh update suggests that another spell on the sidelines is coming the Englishman’s way.
The Latest: Bamford to have surgery
The reporter tweeted:
“Patrick Bamford misses Leeds United’s training camp in Spain to undergo minor groin surgery.”
The Verdict: Big long-term worry
Bamford has been such a vital player for Leeds, even being hailed as “exceptional” by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, such was his brilliance in leading the line.
However, there may now be genuine question marks over his long-term future at Elland Road, due to both his inability to stay fit for a prolonged period and a feeling that his very best days could already be behind him.
It is vital that Leeds look to bring in a new striker in the January transfer window in order to add squad depth, but if Bamford’s woes persist until the summer, it could be time to look beyond the 29-year-old, no matter how brilliant he has been for the club.
