Marcelo Bielsa is pleased with Samu Saiz, saying that he is a “special” player.

Saiz was brilliant for the first part of the season, but after he was suspended for six games for spitting in the loss in the FA Cup against Newport County, he never seemed the same.

Regarding Saiz, Bielsa said:

He’s a player that can create a lack of balance for the rival,

He’s a creative player. He has the capacity to find solutions by himself and this makes him a special player.

We saw during the game on Sunday that he is a special player.

[His attitude is a] very good one. I saw that he was very enthusiastic and very confident. And confident in his skills.
