Leeds United defender Robin Koch is hoping to return to action for the club within four weeks after undergoing surgery on an injury this week.

We covered a report yesterday from BILD that stated Koch had undergone surgery in the USA on an injury to his pubic area.

The injury had kept him out of action for Leeds since the opening day, and the hope was that he could be back in a few weeks time.

Sport 1 now confirm the information from their counterparts, stating that the Leeds man had been suffering from ‘persistent problems’ in his pubic area.

They had stopped him from being able to ‘get going’ this season, having only managed one appearance so far, the 5-1 defeat to Manchester United at the beginning of the season.

He’s also missed two international games in that time but now hopes to ‘start rehabilitation training’ in the next ten days.

After that, he will begin his work to get back on the pitch and believes he can get back into ‘serious training’ with Leeds in about four weeks.

That means Marcelo Bielsa is set to be without his man for the time being, although it seems with any hope his injury problems will now be behind him.
