Leeds United loanee Tyler Robert has revealed he will be out for an extended period after a setback during recovery.
The forward joined Leeds on loan at the start of the season after failing to get more playing time last season. His loan at Queen’s Park Rangers was off to a good start but a calf injury ruled him out for months, ending his chances of playing at the World Cup in December.
The 24-year old was expected to return in February but suffered another setback while on the sidelines. He took to Instagram to give an update on his injury:
“So last week I received news that my injury was not as close to healing as first expected,” he wrote on his Instagram story. “This was incredibly frustrating and upsetting as I worked so hard to come back and be the best version of myself to help the team, but now with this setback the time being on the sidelines has increased.
“As a footballer this is the most low and depressing time you can have. I will continue to walk by faith and work just as hard to hopefully be back out there soon.”
Roberts has made 18 appearances with 14 starts this season, playing more minutes than he did the whole of last season with Leeds.
