Leeds United defender Robin Koch has provided a positive update on his injury recovery, confirming that his return will hopefully arrive ‘as soon as possible’.
The Lowdown: Koch missing for months
The 25-year-old has made just one appearance this season, having been injured in the opening Premier League game away to Manchester United in August.
It means Koch has now been absent for more than two months with a hip issue and he underwent surgery on the problem in Philadelphia last week.
The Latest: Defender provides update
Taking to Twitter on Saturday night, following Leeds’ 1-1 draw at home to Wolves, the centre-back gave a promising update on his road back into the first team.
Kock tweeted: “Last week I underwent minor surgery in Philadelphia to correct problems with my hip. I have already started rehabilitation training here and I am giving everything every day to be able to get back on the pitch as soon as possible and help my teammates.”
The Verdict: Big boost for Leeds
While Koch may not necessarily be a guaranteed starter for the Whites, having him back in the fold in the coming weeks will act as a big boost.
Marcelo Bielsa is without a number of important figures from last season and it is showing on the pitch in Leeds’ ailing results, with Koch very much one of those.
