Marcelo Bielsa has confessed that he has spied on all Championship rivals.
The Leeds United manager was accused of sending someone to watch over the Derby County training session ahead of their clash against the Rams.
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has said that he has spied on all the Championship clubs so far this season but has vowed that he has done nothing “illegal”. The Argentine was accused of reportedly sending a club representative, who was caught by the police, to watch over the Derby County training session ahead of their match, which the Whites won by 2-0. Leeds United are currently at the top of the league table with 54 points after 27 matches and are in contention to move back into the Premier League after a gap of 16 long years.
With the EFL opening a probe against the Elland Road club, the 63-year-old gaffer addressed the media in a press conference confessing about the alleged “spying”. He said, “I’m going to make it easier for the investigation of the League.”
He added, “I’m going to give the information it needs and I assume my behaviour is observed from the most extreme position. I can tell you we observed all the rivals we played against and we watched all the training sessions of the opponents before we played against them.”
