Kemar Roofe talked about what he transition was like this season under Marcelo Bielsa, as the same players who looked, well, average are now in the running for automatic promotion.

Roofe said:

I think it was easy.

Just because we worked so hard in training and in pre-season. He wanted to get us in two weeks sooner. Just to work on everything he wanted.

And it’s not just football it is education as well.

If it was easy anyone could do it, and we know that’s not true. Bielsa’s genius really is getting all of the players on the same program from the very beginning of preseason. It’s not complicated, but it is unique. And again, if it was “easy” everyone, even Frank Lampard, could do it, but they can’t.
