Well, this is actually some good news from Thorp Arch.
He's back! #lufc https://t.co/2jkbgFqPeL— Leeds United News (@LeedsUnitedYEP) December 19, 2018
The club confirmed that Liam Cooper is back in training, meaning that a return to the pitch shouldn’t be too far away for the captain. Leeds will need him to be back soon, with the club still having a small crisis in the back at the present moment. He probably won’t be back for this weekend’s match against Aston Villa, but perhaps Boxing Day?
On to the links.
