‘Disappointing’: Steven Gerrard says 24-year-old won’t be playing against Leicester

‘Disappointing’: Steven Gerrard says 24-year-old won’t be playing against Leicester

Steven Gerrard provided an update on Leon Bailey’s health before of Liverpool’s encounter against Leicester City in his pre-match news conference.

Bailey will miss Aston Villa’s match against Leicester, and he may miss a few more following this one as well.

In fact, according to Steven Gerrard, the winger will be sidelined for the time being because of quadriceps injuries.

What’s Gerrard said about Bailey?

Gerrard delivered some bad news about the Jamaican.

“Leon Bailey will be out for the foreseeable future. He’s had a scan on a quad muscle and there’s obviously damage in there,” Gerrard said.

“That one will be certainly weeks, so he’ll be missing pre-Christmas and to say when he’ll return, it’s too early to say, but that’s a disappointing one for us.”

Unfortunately, this is another blow in Leon Bailey’s stop-start to life at Villa Park.

The winger looked like he would be one of the Midlands club’s star men this season, but fitness issues have meant that he has only started four games this season.

Bailey has looked good when he has been able to have a run in the side, but sadly, he’s not been able to build up any sort of inconsistency at his new club.

Fingers crossed he can leave these issues behind as we go into 2022.
