Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw has claimed that he could still play in the Premier League this season.
The Whites outcast has been missing since September 2019 and has undergone multiple surgeries on his hip problem in the past two years.
Forshaw admitted that his spell on the sidelines has been “horrific” and that he is finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Speaking on the My Conversations with The Pope Podcast, Forshaw admitted that Marcelo Bielsa has been in constant discussion during his rehabilitation.
“It’s going good but obviously it has been hard for me,” he said.
“I’m hoping that I can still play a part this season and put it all behind me. It’s been horrific. I love my job, I go into work and go into the gym. I’m lucky because I enjoy that side.”
Bielsa has been crying out for midfield reinforcements this season.
Mateusz Klich has been in-and-out of the side in recent weeks, and his years of constant football looks to have finally caught up with him fitness-wise.
Forshaw would add serious options off the bench, but based on this, his return doesn’t seem to be around the corner.
Any player that has been injured often has to play one or two games with the under-23s, so we won’t be getting excited until we see that happening.
Forshaw had become somewhat of a forgotten figure, and that silence led us to believe he may not be seen this season, but this latest update has given hope to everyone.
