Leeds United striker Tyler Roberts has taken to Twitter to send a message to his teammate Liam Cooper.

Cooper has been ruled out of action for up to six weeks due to a knee injury he suffered against Sheffield United in the Yorkshire derby last weekend, according to BBC Sport.

The 27-year-old defender has undergone an operation, and his Leeds team-mate and striker Roberts, who can also operate as a striker, has send him a message on Twitter.

 

Blow for Leeds United

Cooper is one of the best and most important players in the current Leeds team, and the injury to the 27-year-old will be a blow to the West Yorkshire outfit.

However, Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa has shown time and time again this season that he can come up with solutions when there are injury problems in his squad.
