Kalvin Phillips treated for head injury at London bonding night as problems mount for Leeds


England and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips had to be treated for a head injury after a crash during a team bonding session in London.

The Leeds side remained in the capital after their 2-1 Premier League loss to Tottenham and spent the night at Cirque Le Soir nightclub where the incident happened.

The Telegraph describes the injury as a “scrape that caused a cut” that required treatment.

Leeds players are given a day off on Monday by manager Marcelo Bielsa, who gave his squad of players a social night due to a busy winter schedule.

Phillips has since been assessed by the club’s medical staff and became fit to train on Tuesday ahead of the weekend’s clash against Brighton.

The incident came after the loss at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, where Phillips played an unknown center-back role.

Phillips didn’t seem too happy to be playing there, but was widely praised for the way he treated Spurs star forward Harry Kane.

“I have to mention Phillips,” Murphy told talkSPORT.

“I know he wasn’t very happy playing at the back, but what about his quality down center, scoring Kane? And how smart he was, knowing when to step up front and when to step down?

“And how comfortable was he with possession?” What a player!

The 25-year-old was named England’s 2021 player of the year after impressing at Euro 2020, playing every game for Gareth Southgate’s side as they advanced to the final.

Phillips has also become a crucial figure for the boyhood club Leeds, which are currently in a relegation battle following a poor start to the season, in part due to a calf injury that kept Phillips from playing.
