Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has told Leeds Live that Barry Douglas will not play against Stoke City this weekend.

The Whites will take on Stoke away from home in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Douglas is injured at the moment, and Bielsa has said that the 29-year-old left-back will not feature against the Potters.

 

The Leeds boss has said that the former Wolverhampton Wanderers star, who can also operate as a left wing-back, will feature against Stoke at Elland Road in the EFL Cup next Tuesday.

Bielsa told Leeds Live when asked about Douglas: “We are thinking about him in the match in the Cup.”

Important player

Douglas has been on the books of Leeds since the summer of 2018 when he joined from Wolves for a transfer fee reported by Sky Sports to be worth £3 million.

The Scotland international is one of the best left-backs in the Championship, and the 29-year-old will be missed against Stoke this weekend, and Leeds fans will hope that he returns next week and gets back to his best soon.
