Pundit believes Liam Cooper’s time as a starter is close to an end

BBC pundit Matt Kilgallon says Max Wober’s form in the team could mean the end of Liam Cooper’s first team place.

Wober arrived in January and has been one of Leeds best performers since he joined the club – the Whites have two clean sheet in their last six games with him in the lineup.

Kilgallon believes that Wober’s impact could mean the end of Liam Cooper’s time at the club:

“It’s normal, you’re at a big club, you’re at a Premier League club, there’s competition,” he told BBC Radio Leeds. “Coops has been in there when it’s his position. I’m afraid that’s the way it is. He knows that, he’s an experienced player, he’s been around. He knows the crack, he knows when he comes back, he’s going to have to wait his time. That’s for sure.

“If you ask him, he’d probably say, yeah Wober’s come in and done great. He knows he’s not going to come back in. I’m afraid that’s not how it works. He’s got to wait his time now, keep fit. And when it changes, it changes.”

Leeds secured their first league win since November under new manager Javi Gracia on Sunday. The Whites face Fulham in the FA Cup midweek.
