Leeds United defender Diego Llorente has been named in Luis Enrique’s Spain squad for their upcoming games against Greece, Georgia and Kosovo.
Llorente picked up a muscle injury whilst on international duty back in October, and it took him until December to regain full fitness.
The 27-year-old got injured once again in the 3-1 defeat against Chelsea and didn’t return until Boxing Day.
Unfortunately, he got injured yet again and only returned in February. Since then, he has been playing regularly for the Whites.
The Leeds defender has played a full 90 minutes in their last four games, including Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea.
Many Leeds fans are hoping that he doesn’t pick up another injury again. He has been brilliant in recent games, and Leeds need him to play until the end of the season.
Absolutely bonkers playing these games.

He has been magnificent since his return from injury, but I think he still looks a little tentative at times. Might still be a couple of weeks away from being 100% recovered and I hope they don’t overplay him.
