Leeds United’s potential defender may need some time to get back to full fitness and match sharpness

Dr. Rajpal Brar, an injury expert, has joined us as an exclusive columnist. He’ll be sharing his thoughts on the Leeds United injury situation every week…

According to Dr. Rajpal Brar, it may take some time for Leeds United defender Liam Cooper to regain full health and match sharpness.

Daniel Farke revealed last week that he was back in light training after suffering a plantar fascia ailment.

The Whites skipper was injured in early August and his return was scheduled for the first week of October, but Brar believes a mid-October return is more likely due to the international break, and the next game is against Norwich on the 21st.

Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, told MOT Leeds News exclusively: “Based on Farke’s comments, the full extent of the damage and recovery is unclear, but it’s fair to see him return in the middle of October, when he should be back to 100%.”

“This is not uncommon with such injuries because they can progress quickly, and diagnosis is based on a number of factors such as loss of function, swelling, manual testing, and imaging.”

Cooper will almost certainly fight his way back into the starting lineup once he recovers from injury.

He may have started the season as the first choice, with Charlie Cresswell also getting a chance, but things have changed.

Joe Rodon and Pascal Struijk are forging a commendable partnership at the back, and their clean sheet away at Millwall was impressive.

In other Leeds United news, Daniel Farke must be laughing as film of a £20 million+ player has emerged in the last week.
