Farke is ‘desperate’ for the Leeds midfielder to return – according to new information on his ailment.

On Sunday, Liam Cooper scored his 11th goal for Leeds United against Cardiff with what appeared to be a twisted ankle. According to Leeds Live, Daniel Farke addressed the matter.

Cardiff’s Josh Bowler and Ike Ugbo scored in a difficult first half, and Leeds rallied with a draw. Cooper boldly headed the ball past custodian Jak Alnwick after Crysencio Summerville‘s corner kick.

Cooper, on the other hand, appeared to have twisted his ankle as he landed. He began writhing in agony in the six-yard box after narrowing the deficit. On his 266th game for Leeds, his bravery provided the momentum for our two-goal comeback.

Cooper’s contribution will surely be important, as evidenced by his performance on Sunday. When asked about Cooper‘s injury, Farke said, “We have to wait for additional assessment.” We’re looking into him since he rolled his ankle. He is really essential.

This is possibly the most important occasion of Cooper‘s nine years at Leeds. Our best centre back is not simply a Leeds leader or a locker room leader with promotion experience.

Cooper has spent his career playing second fiddle or fighting for a starting spot. Particularly in the Premier League. Cooper, on the other hand, will be crucial this year, therefore he must return to full strength as quickly as possible.

Farke recognises this. Cooper‘s injury may inspire Leeds to increase their efforts to buy a center-back, or maybe two. Our list includes Liverpool’s Nat Phillips and Greece’s Pantelis Chatzidiakos.
