Samu Saiz spoke at the pre-Blackburn Rovers press conference along with Marcelo Bielsa.

It sounds like Bielsa has been doing a little man-management of Saiz, which is welcomed. Saiz also said that he found it hard to stay motivated last season, but with Bielsa in charge, I can’t imagine anyone is going to slack off.

This is what happens when you get a manager with the reputation of Bielsa, everyone takes him and the project seriously.

On to the links.
