There hasn’t been a lot of fuss regarding Leeds United’s injury problems.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa has had to arrange and then re-arrange his defence several times.
Pascal Struijk has been used in midfield and as a defender and he showed his survival skills during the game against Chelsea.
He intercepted passes, blocked forward movements by Chelsea and headed the ball away consistently.
His other main quality is that he naturally plays on the left but can play right when needed.
He was taught to use both feet when training early in his career at Ajax.
He is able to release wingers by threading through diagonal passes.
Bielsa now has to decide whether or not to give Pascal a long run in the team given that both injured Robin Koch and Liam Cooper will soon be available.
