By Will Butcher
Hadi Sacko is unsure of the extent of the injury that saw him come off at half-time during Leeds 3-0 triumph against Rotherham at Elland Road, but hopes it’s nothing serious.
The 22-year-old was replaced by Ronaldo Vieira at the break, after suffering a knock during the first half against Leeds’ Yorkshire rivals.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Sacko revealed that he had suffered a “little discomfort” but is not sure how long the knock will keep him out of action.
