Leeds United defender Luke Ayling could miss the match against Blackburn Rovers this weekend.
That’s according to a post on social media from the girlfriend of the 28-year-old, who can operate as a right-back or as a central defender.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side will take on Blackburn at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.
Ayling’s girlfriend has posted a photo of the former Arsenal prospect in bed and looking ill.
Winning against Blackburn Rovers
Leeds are in a good run of form and will head into the match against Blackburn at home as favourites.
The Whites have one of the best and strongest squads in the Championship, and it is hard to see them lose to Rovers.
The West Yorkshire outfit are third in the Championship table at the moment with 28 points from 15 matches, two points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion and level on points with second-placed Preston North End.
