Leeds told to make significant Thorp Arch change amid 'worrying' Instagram reveal - pundit
Gabby Agbonlahor has suggested Leeds United training needs to change due to the number of injuries the squad are picking up.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed Leeds’ mounting injury list is “concerning”.
Patrick Bamford became the latest name on the list as Marcelo Bielsa revealed on Sunday, via Leeds Live, he has suffered a fresh setback.
The striker was fully recovered for the game after recovering from a hamstring strain before suffering a knock just below the hip.
Meanwhile, Tyler Roberts and Joe Gelhardt will be out for between two and three weeks.
As a result, Sam Greenwood made his full senior debut against West Ham on Sunday and revealed on Instagram on Tuesday (11 January) he picked up an injury during the 2-0 defeat and was substituted at half-time.

Pascal Stuijk, Rodrigo, Kalvin Phillips, Charlie Cresswell, Jamie Shackleton and Liam Cooper are all long-term absentees too while Diego Llorente is suspended for Leeds’ next Premier League game.
“I think it’s a bit worrying,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Is there something that needs to change at Leeds? Does training needs to change at Leeds?
“Do they have to start changing the training schedule. It shouldn’t be happening.
“They need to do something because they are not out of it [the relegation battle] yet.
“Leeds need to bring in players or change their training schedules.”
In addition to their lengthly injury list, Leeds have agreed to let young full-back Cody Drameh join Cardiff City.
Football Insider reported today (12 January) Drameh is set to undergo a medical before joining the Welsh outfit on loan.
