The 2022–2023 football season is fast approaching, and teams have been on the lookout for replacements or better choices on and off the field.
Additionally, each side has to assess their injuries in the hope that as many players as possible will be fit soonest.
Leeds survived relegation last season by a single game, and coach Jesse Marsch’s boys must bring something better to the table come next season if they want to remain in the top flight.
His defense, one of the sections he most needs to improve on, has had a boost with the recent signing of Rasmus Kristensen, and there’s more good news for the Leeds family.
As Leeds Live quoted, the American coach gave a positive update on his British defender’s possible return date. Ayling will probably not be out of play for as long as he was earlier expected, given the great progress he has shown in recovery from knee surgery.
“…he’s ahead of schedule,” said Marsch, adding that the 30-year-old might be fit for training next month. “…there there’s a high possibility he can be training in August.”
This is great news for the Whites, who need every addition they can get to their team with next season just around the corner.
However, Jesse is ready for anything, despite there being hope for Ayling’s early return. According to the American, he doesn’t want to “be too optimistic”, which is understandable in the case of injuries.
The Peacocks will most definitely hope for Luke’s early recovery and the impact it’ll have on their squad in terms of both competition for spots and a boost in performance.
