Leeds United forward Sam Greenwood has suggested he’s suffered an injury setback on his latest Instagram story posts.
As you can see from the images below, the 19-year-old has said that he’ll be “soon back”, before posting emojis related to injury and time.
Greenwood, who arrived at Leeds from Arsenal for an initial £1.5million fee, then added to his Instagram story on Sunday morning, showing himself lying down on what seems to be a physio’s table.
Unfortunate setback for in-form teen
Greenwood has been in stunning form for Leeds’ Under-23s this season with the former Arsenal forward scoring six goals in 11 Premier League 2 appearances.
Marcelo Bielsa handed the England youth international his senior debut last month in the FA Cup third-round defeat to Crawley when he came off the bench for the final half an hour.
Greenwood’s played as a striker and an attacking midfielder for the Under-23s so his versatility is definitely something that Bielsa will admire.
And, with Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo unlikely to play against Arsenal on Sunday, Greenwood could have been in Bielsa’s first-team plans.
Even The Athletic’s Phil Hay suggested that, saying ahead of the trip to the Emirates that “Greenwood can’t be too far behind” in terms of Bielsa’s attacking pecking order.
He’s done ever so well since joining from the Gunners and to get his Premier League debut, against his former club, would have been massive for him.
Unfortunately, Greenwood’s suggestion that he’s suffered an injury setback is a huge blow for him and for Leeds.
We wish him all the best in his recovery and hopefully, he can return soon enough to continue adding to his senior appearances for the Yorkshire giants.
