Leeds United loanee Bobby Kamwa suffers injury setback after bizarre scan incident
On-loan Leeds United midfielder Bobby Kamwa has been made to wait for a scan on his injured foot after a very bizarre situation occurred.
The 21-year-old is spending the second half of the season north of the border at Dunfermline in Scotland but has missed their past three games because of this issue.
He was due to have his scan last week but when he turned up at the hospital in Edinburgh, the machine needed to complete the procedure was not working.
Pars boss John Hughes could not believe it as the whole situation seemed to encapsulate Kamwa’s time in Scotland so far.
“Bobby [Kamwa], unfortunately, went for a scan and the machine was broken when we arrived in Edinburgh,” Hughes said, as quoted by The Courier.
“You just start laughing at that — an ironic smile. What can you say? So we’ll try and get him scanned in the next couple of days.
“That is starting to get a little bit frustrating; not just for me, but for Bobby as well.
“He’s a young kid that’s come up here and, trust me, from talking to Bobby, he wanted to hit the ground running.”
What are the chances?
When you’ve picked up an injury and you can’t play, the only thing you want to do is anything possible to get back fit again.
Unfortunately, that means getting a scan first so to turn up at the hospital with no working machine to do said scan must be a rotten place to be.
The 21-year-old has seemingly been flat out of luck since he went to Dunfermline and he must be thinking “when will this end?”
Other Whites loanees have gone out and done well, such as Ryan Edmondson who is finding his goal-scoring boots at Port Vale.
Some of the more highly-rated youngsters have even been given first-team chances such as Leo Hjelde and Lewis Bate but Kamwa has been shuffled off to the side.
It would be a real shame if his career at Elland Road were to end before it even got going and this setback certainly won’t help the situation.
