Junior Firpo won't play for Leeds United again this season - Sky Sports Pundit
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…
Paul Robinson believes Junior Firpo may have played his last game of the season for Leeds United after he was sent off during the 2-2 draw against Newcastle.
The left-back endured a torrid afternoon on Saturday (13 May) after giving away a penalty and being shown a red card in the latter stages of the clash against Eddie Howe’s side.
The 26-year-old is only suspended for the trip to West Ham United but Robinson doesn’t think we will see the defender again this season.
“I think it’s very difficult to talk about anyone’s future when there’s the uncertainty around the managerial situation,” Robinson exclusively told MOT Leeds News.
“The manager may come in who has worked with him previously and want him as part of his plans.
“As far as recognised left back’s go, Stuart Dallas played there last season, and Pascal Struijk has played there. Kristensen has played that position.
“But if Firpo’s going to play as he did and the weekend and be as unreliable as that.
“You can’t comment on the longevity of players’ futures because we don’t know what league they are going to be in, but at the moment, although he’s only suspended for one game, I suspect he might have played his last game this season.”
