Forshaw shares verdict on Bielsa sessions, opens up on 'one per cent' that could help Leeds

Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw has had a nightmare end to the previous year recently.

His injury has kept him out action for months, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any clearer when he will be returning to the fold at Elland Road.

The Athletic journalist Phil Hay has recently reported that Forshaw could be back in less than a weeks time as of now, and that would be a significant boost to the Whites.

Despite being injured, Forshaw has recently opened up on the methods that Bielsa likes to use during his training sessions in the build-up to games.

“We’ll do anything from individual sessions on clips in a game or collective meetings on things away from football like articles that we’ve all seen,” he told the BBC.

“If for whatever reason the manager may have seen something in the press that he may be liked, maybe an analysis on a certain player or something, we could have a meeting on it and pick things from a certain article that had just come out that week.

“If it’s any one per cent that can help us, or maybe it’s just a different way to look at it sometimes when you can’t train out on the field.”

Forshaw opening up on that one per cent is typical Bielsa and proves that he is obsessed with every last detail to try and give his side any sort of advantage every single week.

With the midfielder talking about the training sessions, hopefully, that is a sign that it is only a matter of time before we all see him back on the field.
