This was an interested admission by Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa on results: "In the first five games we won four. In the last eight games we only won two. It's impossible not to see a problem in this case. We are trying to make the right diagnosis, otherwise any correction would be a mistake. We have to change this cycle of results."— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) October 23, 2018
The Leeds manager said about recent results that, “In the first five games we won four. In the last eight games we only won two. It’s impossible not to see a problem in this case.”
Of course, this being Bielsa, he immediately said it was a problem for him to fix and refused to place blame on the players. Here’s hoping that the team can respond and get a win over Ipswich Town, who are bottom of the table and have looked rather poor so far this season. A good win over a bad team will do wonders for this club, and if West Bromwich Albion don’t win their match against Derby County, Leeds will be on top of the table once again with a win.
