Leeds United defender Robin Koch has revealed everything is going to plan in his recovery from a knee injury.

The centre back joined Leeds in an £11.7m deal from Freiburg in the summer and had been a regular under Marcelo Bielsa ever since.

He’s been missing since the beginning of December, though, after picking up a knee injury in the 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

He’s since been recovering from the injury after going under the knife, with BILD reporting that he underwent surgery on the meniscus injury at the Fortus Clinic in London two weeks ago.

His rehabilitation has now started, with the newspaper also claiming that Koch’s goal is to be ready for the next set of international matches in March and then the European Championships in the summer.

He’s now provided an update on his recovery, reassuring Leeds fans that things are going well for him and thanking them for their support.

“Everything is going according to plan and very well,” he said.

“I will continue to work on my comeback over the holidays, and I am confident that I will be back on the pitch soon in the New Year.

“The many positive messages I receive give me additional motivation.”
