Leeds United under-23s forward Ryan Edmondson has shared footage of him completing hill sprints during the enforced break.
The BBC confirmed that the young striker had to undergo surgery on a knee problem before the break, something that was meant to keep him out until the end of March.
Edmondson would have been back playing with Carlos Corberan’s team by now, but he didn’t get the chance to return before the Coronavirus pandemic put a halt to live sport.
That hasn’t stopped the 18-year-old progressing nicely in his rehabilitation though, and this latest video proved that he can push his knee hard without any repercussions.
Edmondson posted the video to his story on his personal Instagram account on Thursday, as he completed his exercise at the local Roundhay Park.
“These are horrible,” he wrote for his followers.
Corberan, luckily, had Jean-Kevin Augustin available to him in the first few weeks of Edmondson’s absence, although the Frenchman certainly wasn’t up to full fitness during that time.
After the RB Leipzig jumped up to first-team action under Marcelo Bielsa, Bobby Kamwa was given the added responsibility and he certainly grasped that.
Edmondson has never quite been fancied by Bielsa in the first-team, and Kamwa scored a couple of goals during his teammate’s absence, including one against Barnsley with the South American present.
He may be back to full fitness, but Edmondson will need to do much more to prove himself once training resumes.
