Whilst Carlos Corberan might have offered a positive update on the matter, that doesn’t mean Leeds fans aren’t in meltdown over it.
It just seems like an unnecessary risk, and we’ll have to wait and see if there are any long term problems that come as a result of it. Jean-Kevin Augustin made his ‘debut’ for the club yesterday during the U23 side’s game against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in a 2-2 draw, however it wasn’t the score that was getting the attention of the fans.
In fact there was something a lot more concerning taking place.
One fan noticed that the new signing hobbled off the pitch at half time before having to be replaced before the restart. U23 boss Corberan described said after the game that “he’s positive, he wanted to continue playing but we don’t want the players playing more than 45 minutes because they have to follow the normal process of the week with the first team”, but that footage doesn’t exactly make for positive viewing.
News which clearly didn’t make its way to the United fans as they were left with two emotions after hearing the news. Either despair that this sort of thing should happen so soon, or anger at him being used in the U23 side in the first place.
At least Bielsa doesn’t need an excuse this week for not having him in the squad 😉

Are you nervous about this latest news about Augustin?
Now we just wait anxiously to see if he’s going to come out of this in one piece.
