Spotted: Leeds United ace Joe Rodon arrives at Hull City with 'badly bruised' face after incident
Leeds United defender Joe Rodon was spotted arriving at Hull City with a nasty facial injury.
Club writer Beren Cross posted footage of the players exiting the team coach ahead of the match on Wednesday [20 September].
As pointed out by Cross, Rodon’s face was “badly bruised” after taking a whack to the head during the 3-0 win at Millwall three days ago.
Rodon was able to continue despite being caught in the face at The Den and was arguably the best player on the pitch for Leeds.
The Wales international has taken no time at all to become a regular in the heart of Daniel Farke’s back four since joining on a season’s loan from Tottenham.
To highlight just how dominant Rodon was against fierce rivals Millwall, he won a whopping nine aerial duels [WhoScored].
For some context, no other player on the field managed more than six.
With experience of playing in Ligue 1 and the Premier League, as well as the World Cup and European Championships at international level, Rodon is a serious leader in the Leeds ranks.
And his commitment to the cause – if further proof was needed – is clear given his availability to face Hull.
As far as loan signings go, this was quite the capture for United.
