Leeds United midfielder Adam Forshaw finally returned to action last week as he helped the under-23s side seal the Premier League 2 Division 2 title.
Patrick Bamford, Emma Jones, Matt Lewis and Jermaine Beckford celebrated that success this week when discussing all things happening at Thorp Arch.
Forshaw has struggled with his hip in recent years, and even underwent surgery in Colorado; something that didn’t stop consecutive setbacks.
Lewis started the conversation on the official Leeds United Podcast, following on from a failed joke the midfielder made to Bamford.
“Forshaw is out of his pyjamas,” he said. “He finally played a game.”
Jones celebrated with a loud cheer, as Bamford shared his delight for his teammate who had been sidelined for two years with his injury problems.
“Buzzing for him. Great to see for him.”
This is the news that we have all been waiting for in the past couple of years.
It has been hinted numerous times while we have all been waiting, but seeing Forshaw back on the pitch at Bodymoor Heath last week was superb.
What was best about it, was that the midfielder was throwing himself into challenges, and getting stuck into the opposition, showing that he has healed fully.
Who knows? We could see Forshaw back in the matchday squad for the Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday evening.
Bamford and the squad are clearly thrilled to see one of their long-term teammates return in West Yorkshire, and we are in that club, too.
Forshaw is back, and we couldn’t be happier.
