Leeds United fans on Twitter have been reacting to Marcelo Bielsa’s response in Thursday’s press conference after he was asked about team news.
The Argentine answered the question by stating that a supporter had told him to stop naming the team before the match, but he then went on to state that it would be an unchanged side.
Leeds face Wigan in the third game of the season on Saturday, and after they lost to the Latics last season they will be hoping to get some revenge.
This isn’t the first time Bielsa has named his team before the game, but this time he addressed the criticisms that he shouldn’t spill the beans as it could give the opposition an advantage.
The humorous nature of his answer had journalists and fans laughing.
Many supporters found the 64-year-old’s refusal to change his methods quite funny.
???????????? what a man

Other fans didn’t take much notice to the way Bielsa answered the question. Instead, they focused on the fact that the team will be the same again this weekend. There were multiple calls for Helder Costa to start, while another fan wanted to see new signing Eddie Nketiah play his first league game.
Need to start seeing Costa and Eddie ????♂️

One fan stated that he still isn’t happy with the fact that he’s given away the team.
