We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Leeds United...

Leeds United attacker Mateo Joseph is now ready to feature for 90 minutes after spending months on the sidelines, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert claims that the 19-year-old had a Grade 2 ankle inversion which is what kept him out of action.

Daniel Farke revealed that he’s spent time in crutches and he was put in a protective boot to help with his recovery.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said about Joseph: “He suffered a grade 2 inversion sprain injury.

His time on crutches depended on how he was responding to physio and he was likely put him into a CAM boot and then gradually into a shoe again.

Training will have been a gradual increase in intensity and with ankle injuries, the key is often tolerating side-to-side movements effectively.

“He now seems ready to play for the Whites post the international break.”

Joseph has not played a single minute for Leeds this season but returned to the bench for the 0-0 draw against Sheffield Wednesday.

He was not loaned out by the Whites this summer so there is a chance that he will feature for the first team in the coming weeks.

It remains to be seen what Farke views as his ideal position and with the Whites out of the Carabao Cup, he can’t even give him the odd start in the cup games.
