Leeds United will be hoping to get back to action in the coming weeks as they look to finish the job by winning promotion.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men are currently top of the Championship but they importantly hold a seven-point gap over third-placed Fulham with just nine fixtures left to play. Whilst there has been no return date officially confirmed, it was reported last week that the clubs will hope to return to training on Monday, with the season restarting next month.

With that in mind, the Whites players will be stepping up their fitness regime and the club took to Twitter to share a few images of some first-team members in their own individual programmes.
And, the prospect of watching the players back out on the pitch has clearly excited the Leeds fans, who are confident that Bielsa’s notoriously strong demands when it comes to fitness will ensure the side come flying out the blocks. Here we look at some of the comments…
Klich looks like a million bucks, he’s ready. He hasn’t been sat eating crisps.

I honestly believe we will still be one of fittest teams in the league even at this stage due to the planning the club put in place pre lockdown. Well done MOT

I’m not worried about fitness levels, they have committed so much of their lives under Bielsa already, there’s no way this lockdown would have stopped their desire to get promoted. They want it just as bad as we all do. LET’S GET THIS DONE!!

We’re going to rip this league apart when we get back. The level of attention to detail and professionalism is now top league level. Let’s get it done.

Leeds will smash this league when it restarts the first month after pre season miles fitter than anyone else last two seasons
