Wolves attacker Pablo Sarabia sends message to Leeds United attacker Rodrigo

Wolves attacker Pablo Sarabia has encouraged Leeds United ace Rodrigo after it was revealed that he will be ruled out for two months.

Rodrigo took to Instagram to share a picture of him on the hospital bed as his ankle requires surgery for him to return to action.

There were plenty of encouraging comments on the post and Sarabia, who is a fellow Spaniard, also chipped in to show his support.

He wrote in Spanish, “Cheer up, beast.”

Big miss

Rodrigo has been one of the best if not the best player for Leeds this season and they’re certainly going to miss his services.

He has bagged 10 goals in the league already which very few thought he would achieve at the halfway mark of the season.

He’s also managed to keep himself fit until this injury and that says a lot for someone who’s going to turn 32 in March.

Despite signing Geroginio Rutter, Jesse Marsch will still miss having the Spaniard, who has become a guaranteed starter and one of the first names on the team sheet.

Rutter now has to take over the responsibility from Rodrigo and become the number one goal-scoring threat for Leeds.

Patrick Bamford’s proven to be extremely unreliable with his fitness and the Whites should consider offloading him as and when they get the chance.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are now preparing to sign a former Barcelona defender in the summer and have already taken decisive steps towards sealing the deal.
