Marcelo Bielsa back with his weekly press conference earlier. Injury news is that Pablo Hernandez is out of the Cardiff game. Minor issue but will be back to full training in the lead-up to the Fulham game. #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHay_) June 18, 2020
It has been over three months since the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, and this injury for Hernandez leaves another hurdle for Marcelo Bielsa and his side to overcome.
In his press conference, Bielsa said: “Pablo is returning to training next Wednesday”.
There had been lots of rumours on social media over the last few days that the former Spain international would be unavailable, with the consensus being that Wales international Tyler Roberts would take his place.
Leeds will also be without Kiko Casilla through suspension, Jean-Kevin Augustin after the recurrence of his Hamstring injury, and Adam Forshaw after his hip operation.
Augustin is doing individual work to try and get back to fitness, while Forshaw has “completed his recovery process” according to Bielsa, although he isn’t close to being fit enough to play.
