Expert: Jesse Marsch shares what Max Wober said in Leeds United dressing room after injury

Injury Expert Ben Dinnery has revealed what Leeds United defender Max Wober said to Jesse Marsch in the dressing room after he limped off in the 5-2 win over Cardiff City on January 18.

It was a great night for Marsch and Leeds United who comfortably cruised to victory at Elland Road in one of the team’s best performances under the American.

Nevertheless, it was slightly marred by a potential Wober injury, something which Marsch played down as not “too bad” in his post-match duties.

“Marsch played down the injury post-match,” said Dinnery on his personal Twitter account. (January 19, 9:03 AM)

“‘I asked him in the dressing room, and he said he doesn’t think it’s too bad. So hopefully, he can regenerate and go again.'”

Treated to a feast.

The Elland Road faithful haven’t enjoyed a home FA Cup tie for some time, the Cardiff City return fixture was their first since 2016 and they were treated to a feast.

Wilfried Gnonto was the standout performer on the evening, hitting the back of the net twice, one of which was a sublime volley, very much like his compatriot Paulo Di Canio’s famous volleyed finish.

Patrick Bamford also grabbed two goals on the evening, a pleasant sight for the home fans and something the Englishman desperately needed for his confidence moving forward.

With Gnonto seemingly on fire, Bamford returning to scoring form, Rodrigo continuing to his scoring feats and Georginio Rutter to add to the mix, Leeds United could have a much-improved second half to the season.

It was a significant victory for Marsch, who has come under huge scrutiny after his recent poor run of form; just two wins from 17 games before the Cardiff game.

The high-energy performance will be needed once again when the Whites face Brentford in the Premier League, Whites won’t be holding their breath just yet, but this one was sweet.

In other Leeds United news, one fan favourite is likely to get the nod from the start in our predicted XI to face Cardiff.
