Luis Sinisterra injury update shared by Jesse Marsch as Leeds United forward steps up recovery

Leeds United forward Luis Sinisterra is back on the pitch doing individual training and it won’t be long before he returns to action, as shared by Jesse Marsch.

The Colombian forward has been missing for more than 10 weeks with a Lisfranc injury, but it seems he is progressing really well and could be back on the side in the next ten days.

Sinisterra has got the ability to become the club’s talisman figure, but he has badly struggled with injuries since joining the Whites in the summer from Feyenoord.

“Luis is making very good progress [and] has been on the pitch doing a lot of individual work, which is the next big phase for him. Maybe in 10 days, he’ll be with the team,” said Marsch, as quoted by Leeds Live (3 January).

“This Lisfranc injury is strange and so it’s not always easy to know exactly how it’s going to respond, but right now a lot of real positive signs, which would be big for us.”

New signing

The 23-year-old has scored three goals in 10 games in all competitions for the Whites. 

He was looking in great form after scoring in back-to-back games against Everton and Brentford between late August and early September. 

The versatile attacking midfielder has looked a class apart playing on both flanks, but he looked a different beast operating from the left-hand side. 

There’s no doubt that he can fill the void left by Raphinha, and his return to the side is like a new January signing for the club. 

His injury problems are a bit of a concern for the fans. He was kept out of the starting line-up for the first four league games of the season after he picked up an injury in the pre-season. 

Sinisterra is an exciting player to watch. He loves to dribble and he is very good with his passing as well. Marsch should look to integrate him gradually into the side, but we can expect him to get some minutes at some point later this month. 

In other Leeds United news, this star man has been ruled out of the clash v West Ham while another senior ace is still a doubt.
