Leeds United are preparing to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Tuesday. Ahead of the game, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has given a press conference.
During the press conference, Bielsa was asked about Junior Firpo. Firpo joined the Whites in the summer transfer window. So far the 25-year-old has made 11 appearances as he missed most of the games due to an injury.
“Junior is a player that is growing as he puts minutes together, his performances have been improving until he had an interruption due to injury,” said Bielsa.
“Now he’s progressively recovering his best form as it happened like so at the beginning of the season. The last game was a difficult game for us down the right sector of the opponent, he suffered a caution early on and that conditions the player with the freedom he has to go and win the ball, and the coordination down the left didn’t give him the backup he would usually have.”
