Leeds United have been without Robin Koch for some time now as he recovers from an injury which required surgery, and Phil Hay has shed some light on when he will return to training.
The latest on Koch
The journalist for The Athletic reported the injury update after Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference before the match against Aston Villa this weekend. Hay tweeted: “Robin Koch due back in training the first week of March.”
This is great news for Leeds
The German defender was a key asset in the back line for Leeds before his injury this campaign. The £15.30m-rated ace had featured in all ten Premier League matches until his absence, managing 1.8 tackles, two interceptions and 2.1 clearances per game in the top-flight (WhoScored).
He has received high praise in the past, including from his former teammate Vincenzo Grifo, who called him a ‘monster centre-back’, as well as having the potential to become ‘world-class’.
The latest update will be very exciting for all associated with Leeds, as it looks like his surgery went perfectly and he is nearing his return. Hopefully he will be able to make an impact for the club before the end of the campaign and help them battle for a top half finish.
