Leeds United fans were met with some great news on Tuesday morning as Rodrigo is back in training at Thorp Arch.
He posted an Instagram story that showed him in his Leeds training gear with the caption “Work” attached to it.
The Leeds attacker missed the last two games for the club after testing positive for Covid-19 – against Leicester and Crystal Palace – and both games ended in 4-1 defeats.
It looks like he’s back on track for a return in the game against Arsenal on Sunday and that will be a huge boost for Leeds.
Rodrigo return a big boost
Rodrigo has really started showing what he’s capable of, although not in the position most Leeds fans thought he’d be playing.
As Spain’s number nine, Rodrigo was thought to be the striker who would come in and replace Patrick Bamford when he signed in the summer.
However, Bamford has been on fire this season and with seven goals in eight games, is not going anywhere.
Rodrigo has been introduced slowly into the number 10 spot and in the second-half of the 1-1 draw against Man City and against Aston Villa he was on fire, spraying passes around the pitch and cutting the opposition open.
He looks so assured on the ball and looks every bit a £27m player.
With him in the number 10 spot and Patrick Bamford up top, Leeds seem to have found an attacking partnership that can really deliver in the Premier League.
We think Rodrigo will go straight back into the starting XI on Sunday and we hope Pablo Hernandez makes the bench after his bust-up with the manager.
