LUFC Long season continues for Austin
Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin is preparing for a busy few weeks after what has already been a busy fourteen months.
Austin is currently in the Bahamas training with Jamaica ahead of their three World Cup qualifiers with Jamaica as well as two friendlies, including one against English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
The Jamaican squad travelled to the Bahamas today and will stay there for twelve days ahead of their crucial World Cup qualifiers next month.
As part of their build-up to the qualifiers, they will play Tottenham on May 23rd and Bahamas on May 31st.
They will then head back to Jamaica for a home double-header in the World Cup against Mexico (June 4th) and USA (June 7th). They then travel to Honduras for the last of their three World Cup qualifiers against Honduras on June 11th.
It has been a non-stop fourteen months for Austin. He started March 2012 playing in the Norwegian League for SK Brann, where he made 12 appearances before signing for Leeds towards the end of July. He made 38 appearances for Leeds in his first season with the club and he was called up to represent Jamaica on three occasions during the season, meaning long-haul flights between championship games.
Leeds players are due to return for pre-season training on June 27th ahead of the new season and it is not clear whether Austin will return at the same time.
