#PLStories-#MarceloBielsa excited to have #DiegoLlorente in playing squad for Leeds #LUFC

Leeds United will have Mateusz Klich available for Friday’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux (8pm).
Diego Llorente is also fit, but Kalvin Phillips and Rodrigo remain sidelined.
Kich was withdrawn from the 4-2 defeat to Arsenal last time out at half-time while Llorente has been hit with groin and hamstring injuries this season.
Phillips is still recovering from a calf injury sustained in a match against Crystal Palace this month while Rodrigo hasn’t played this month with a groin problem of his own sustained in a 3-1 win at Leicester City at the end of January.
Leeds head coach Marcelo Biesa has been discussing the latest injury news ahead of the game against Wolves and confirmed Ian Carlo Poveda is still out with a groin injury which he is recovering from.

On Llorente, who has managed just one start all season, Bielsa told LeedsLive : “He is available to play right now and depending on the development in the next few games, we’ll see when we use him. The needs of the first team will decide how much we use him.”
On Leeds’ injury situation in general, Bielsa added: “Every team has problems with injuries. Some more than others. Sometimes there’s teams who have many injuries at the same period. Things we know about and have to find solutions.”
Wolves have been hit by injury themselves, with the biggest blow coming at the end of November when Raul Jimenez suffered a fractured skull at Arsenal.

Jimenez ‘s injury presented Wolves with a task of replacing him in the January transfer window, with Nuno Esprito Santo’s side opting to sign Willian Jose from Real Sociedad.
“To build a team is not a task done in one year,” Bielsa said.
“In the case of their centre-forward, to replace him they brought in a player with good pedigree. We made our signings at the beginning of the year. A big effort for this. A big effort to preserve Meslier, Harrison, Helder Costa and to bring in the other four. To adapt your squad is a difficult or complicated task.”
