Marcelo Bielsa emphasized the importance of Leeds going on the attack against Reading in tonight’s match.
Bielsa on improvement he's looking for tomorrow: "To attack we need a lot of dynamism. We need to make the opponent make mistakes. When we attack well we defend well." #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) November 26, 2018
Bielsa is known as the “high priest of the high press” and it shows in this statement, how he wants his teams to press up high and attack and not allow the other team to get anything going offensively.
Leeds defend best when the team goes on the attack, it’s when the team can’t attack that everything goes bad.
