Leeds United East Stand

A young Leeds United player has suffered a serious injury.

Leeds United teenager Michael Taylor recently took to Twitter to post a photograph of himself as he recovers from a serious injury.

The 17-year-old’s tweet came at an interesting time, with six of the club’s first-team players pulling out of the match-day squad for Saturday’s clash with Charlton Athletic the day Leeds were set to travel.

Those players were Mirco Antenucci, Marco Silvestri, Dario Del Fabro, Souleymane Doukara, Giuseppe Bellusci and Edgar Cani, with the first two taking to Twitter shortly after the news broke to justify their decisions to pull out.

Whatever the truth, it has led to plenty of debate, and that only continued when Leeds narrowly lost 2-1 at The Valley.

As for Taylor, the youngster was photographed in a neck-brace, and went on to write the following message to his followers:

“Feeling lucky to be able to walk around, but I always say everything happens for a reason; just got to stay positive.”

The Leeds player went on to suggest that he would be home for around 10 weeks, with the brace expected to remain in place for the majority of that time.

In the same period of time when six Leeds injuries were being questioned by some, this one should not go under the radar.
