Kandol can still be a force for Leeds

First published in Sport by

Tresor Kandol is hoping the bad times are behind him as he looks to revamp his Leeds career.

The 28-year-old Congolese international striker made a brief comeback as a substitute in the 2-2 draw at Huddersfield on Saturday after two months out of the first-team picture.

He missed the FA Cup victory at Manchester United and the 1-1 home draw against Wycombe in the league for personal reasons, before picking up a hamstring injury in training.

After loan spells at Millwall and Charlton last season, Kandol was told before the start of the present campaign that he had no future at Elland Road.

But some impressive displays in the reserves and four goals in six first-team games caused a rethink.

United manager Simon Grayson said: “Tresor did well for us before his injury so it is good to have him back again.

“I didn’t want to rush him back too soon but he has been training hard and he offers us something different up front.”
