Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to react after the Club posted a video of Patrick Bamford and Robin Koch training at Thorp Arch.
What’s the story?
Well, this is excellent news for Leeds, as Bamford and Koch are hugely important players for Marcelo Bielsa.
Bamford has been missing since September 17th, when he suffered an ankle injury in the 1-1 draw against Newcastle.

After playing 90 minutes against Manchester United on the opening day of the season, the 25-year-old has missed every game due to a pubis bone contusion, which required surgery.
Thankfully, Koch’s operation was a successful one.
Now, the pair are back training at Thorp Arch, which is huge news.
Should Patrick Bamford walk straight back into Leeds XI?
After scoring 17 Premier League goals last season, this is a bold question to ask. However, the form of Joe Gelhardt has created an interesting debate.
The £1m signing from Wigan has shone since breaking into the first-team, and delivered another eye-catching display against Tottenham on Sunday.
As WhoScored shows, Gelhardt had four shots against Spurs, and also completed five dribbles – no player on the pitch dribbled more.
The 19-year-old also won three freekicks.
Of course, Bamford has credit in the bank with Bielsa, but it would be very harsh to drop Gelhardt after a string of impressive displays.
For now, let’s see what the Leeds fans on Twitter have been saying about the footage from Thorp Arch…

Excellent. Let’s get some points in the next three and have him back for Chelsea onwards. If Rapha and Rodrigo are ok for Saturday we can ease Bammy back in— 🏳️🌈 Stu Dalgleish 💛💙 (@StuDalgleish) November 23, 2021
