Given the praise Marcelo Bielsa, who took place in Pep Guardiola, and received back in exchange to the magnificent triumph of Leeds about the leaders of the Premier League of Leeds Manchester City, may not be surprised, the veteran manager avoided responding to a Ask about what was felt to beat the man who is described as “magical”.
“That Leeds beat Manchester City does not mean that I forgot about his manager,” Bielsa said.
“That Guardiola is the manager of the Leeds Beat team today, I do not consider anything on my part. The value belongs to the players”.
It is typical of Bielsa, which is still an enigma within the English game, partly because he still carries out all his media conferences in Spanish, often with his head down, doing it practically impossible to analyze it.
But if evidence is required to show what he means with the reappearance of Leeds as a strength of the Premier League, it is easy enough to find. Exactly three years before its two objectives allowed Leed became the second team of 29 opponents to prevent both from avoiding winning and expired city, Stuart Dallas completed the 90 minutes complete in a 3-1 defeat in Preston.
