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 Crysencio Summerville may be aggravating his shoulder by playing through the pain barrier, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.
Daniel Farke revealed at the end of October that the Dutchman needs painkillers to get through matches for the Whites.
He even played just 60 minutes in the game against Huddersfield Town when he scored two goals and provided two assists.
Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said about Summerville:
“Difficult to say how long the painkillers will continue because we don’t know the details of the injuries or his symptoms – like the extent or duration of discomfort.
“Playing every week may be aggravating it but it is difficult to say how much and what the club considers tolerable risk.“
Summerville has been in red hot form for Leeds this season and has arguably been their best player under Daniel Farke.
He’s scored six goals and provided four assists in 12 league games – which is nearly a goal or assist every game.
He did play the full 90 minutes against Leicester City on Friday and is expected to be named in the starting eleven for the Plymouth clash as well on 11 November.
In other Leeds United news, sources reveal that the Whites want to sign an EFL ‘Star’ and his club may be forced to sell him in January.
