Jesse Marsch explains Bamford’s Leeds absence vs Brentford: ‘He was fit and ready…’

Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch has provided an explanation for Patrick Bamford missing out on a place in the club’s matchday squad to face Brentford.

Hitman Bamford has of course endured something of a nightmare campaign to date.

Owing to a seemingly never-ending string of fitness issues, the English international has been restricted to just seven Premier League starts, on his way to a paltry two goals.

Positive signs, however, had begun to surface across the week to date, hinting that Bamford could yet be available for selection for Leeds’ final day Premier League showdown with Brentford.

Speaking to the media ahead of the action getting underway in the English capital, Jesse Marsch was therefore inevitably drawn on the whereabouts of his star striker.

And, incredibly, Leeds’ boss went on to reveal that Bamford, earlier in the week, was deemed ‘fit and ready to go’ for today’s clash.

On Friday, however, the 28-year-old returned a positive test for Covid-19, and has since been left ‘really, really sick’.
