Becchio Injury Bomb Shell


Leeds United face the prospect of starting the new season without their top two strikers. Luciano Becchio looks doubtful for the start of the season after a reoccurrence of the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the end of last season.Becchio hasn`t featured in pre season after the reoccurrence of the injury whilst on the pre season tour of Scotland.Leeds boss Simon Grayson thinks the Argentinian looks doubtful for the start of the season but is not yet ruling it out.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said,"His hamstring is a bit of a concern at the moment, we obviously have to keep assessing the situation.
"He basically ruptured his tendon at the end of last season. We gave it throughout the summer to try to heel but he broke down about a week ago when we were up in Scotland.
"We`ve got to decide very shortly, do we try and let it heel again or get him the operation he could have had at the end of last season.
"The longer it goes on the more doubtful he is for the start of the season but we will give him every opportunity.
"If he`s not ready for the start of the season then we will try and get him back as quick as possible."

The news comes as a blow just days after fellow striker Davide Somma was ruled out for a lengthy period with a cruciate knee ligament injury.
