Leeds United will be able to call upon Max Wöber this weekend against Brentford after he was forced off through injury against Cardiff City.
Leeds’ injury issues have been no joke this season when compared to a lot of their Premier League rivals, and they come into their clash with Brentford having still got key players missing.
A midweek clash against Cardiff City in an FA Cup replay brought another potential headache for Marsch to contend with.
Max Wöber looked impressive at the heart of Leeds’ defence, before a short pass from Sam Greenwood brought a 50-50 with Kion Etete, resulting in a hefty tackle from the striker on Wöber.
He carried on, before going down with what looked like a hip issue shortly after in the game, leaving Marsch with another potential setback to deal with.
However, with Sky Sports News previewing Leeds’ weekend clash at home to Brentford, they filmed the squad training at Thorp Arch, where Wöber could be seen in the background (captured by @WALMOT_ on Twitter):
Marsch confirmed too in his pre-match press conference that the centre-back would be available for selection against the Bees (via Phil Hay):
Wöber is already staking a claim to be in the starting lineup with how he’s performed so far in the league and cup.
He could be a real boost to how Leeds look to set up under Marsch, given that he’s been a captain in the Red Bull system prior to joining, and knows the system inside and out.
That organisation could be really key to getting this formation and pressing structure right.
I would be more than happy to see him start at the weekend against the Bees.
