Phil Hay: Leeds United to get more answers on Luis Sinisterra injury today

Leeds United expect to get more news on the injury of Luis Sinisterra on Thursday 3rd November after his latest blow was confirmed, according to Phil Hay.

The Athletic journalist admitted that more results were expected within hours after initial scans highlighting that the foot injury was not as severe as first anticipated.

Jesse Marsch confirmed that Sinisterra has torn a tendon close to the metatarsals, rather than fully rupturing it which could have caused even bigger issues.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Hay shared what to expect in the coming hours as the Whites look for more answers to their latest problem.

“Injury to Sinisterra affects the metatarsals,” he wrote.

“Has seen a specialist and Leeds expect to get more news today. Initial scans suggest it’s not as severe as it could be.”

Nail biting.

With the World Cup only two Premier League games away, this could have been a lot worst.

Leeds have been handed the perfect chance to let Sinisterra rest up and heal rather than him missing the entire busy Christmas period and only increasing pressure.

Even with news expected within hours, if there are only weeks out rather than months, the Whites can count themselves lucky with this one.

Now there is a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Crysencio Summerville to continue his form after finding the back of the net against Liverpool and Fulham.

Having Dan James back at the club would have certainly helped, although his loan spell at Fulham is likely to continue with his Leeds career appearing to be left in the past.

Marsch may open the door to Willy Gnonto to get more playing time now after his cameo at Anfield though, so every cloud may have a silver lining for the young Italian.

Let’s hope for good news from these results, either way.
