'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Byram wants to return fighting fit

Leeds United defender Sam Byram says he will come back next season hungrier than ever after a frustrating season at Elland Road.

The young defender who was the clubs player of the year last season has struggled with injuries this season and he is finishing the season on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury at Wigan Athletic that has seen him miss the last five games.

Byram started the season behind everyone else having failed to recover from the hip injury that forced him to miss the final two games of last season and he also admits it has been tough mentality to cope with being on the sidelines.

Speaking to LUTV, Byram said, "It was a stop-start season for me with injuries.

"I am hungrier than ever to come back in pre-season, get a good pre-season and go from there.

"It has been a tough season with injuries. I am still young and it has been tough mentally. Last season went so well so it has been tough to deal with.

"I want to get some rest over the summer and come back fit and healthy.

"It has been a frustrating season but hopefully next season will be much better."


Byram had to wait until the game with Burnley on September 21st to make his first appearance of the season but after just three games back, he was forced out through injury, missing the next two games.

He returned for just two games before picking up another injury at Huddersfield that saw him miss the next month. Byram enjoyed a good run in the side until picking up a hamstring injury in the final moments of the game at Wigan that has ruled him out for the season.

Despite a number of niggling injuries, he has still managed 27 appearances this season.
