We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson has said he wouldn’t read anything into Michael Cuisance failing a medical at Leeds late in the summer window, before passing one at Marseille and starting his first game last weekend.
He said that the Leeds medical would be especially stringent and that Cuisance obviously didn’t meet the special requirements that Marcelo Bielsa demands.
Bayern Munich refuted the fact that Cuisance had failed his medical with manager Hansi Flick saying, “The situation is certainly not that easy for him now. It was certainly a setback, but I can say that our medical staff have a completely different opinion.”
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “The fact that Micahel Cuisance has played one game since his medical doesn’t really tell you anything.
“What I do know is that the Leeds medical would be very stringent and there would be a lot of things he’d need to pass under Bielsa.
“As far as Leeds were concerned Cuisance didn’t meet the requirements that they set out in the medical.
“The fact he played once after he passed a medical at Marseille doesn’t tell you anything.
“If he goes on to play 50 games in a row and smashes it then that’s something to talk about.
“At the moment I just don’t think there’s anything there.”
The only missing piece for Leeds in this transfer window was a midfielder and Cuisance had got the Leeds fans very excited.
Cuisance joined Marseille on loan instead and played 74 minutes in the 3-1 win against Bordeaux on Saturday.
Plenty of Marseille fans were impressed with what they saw and Leeds fans were left wondering what might have been.
