The video shows Marcelo Bielsa slowly wander over to shake Kiko Casilla’s hand (0:33) after he made a big save at the end of the match to deny Liam Moore (4:16) and ensure that Leeds moved five points clear of third.
Will this be a boost for Casilla?
Certainly, this footage of Bielsa and Casilla has gone down brilliantly with these Whites fans.
Bielsa going onto the pitch to shake Kikos hand after that late save in the @LUFC win over reading.

That’s a huge thing for Kiko. Bielsa never goes on the pitch! Amazing touch by Marcelo

Shaking it will injure it more. Savage from Bielsa.

This is where his management style has an advantage. The praise is meant and will be felt by the players when it comes.

What do we think?
If he is found guilty, he will be banned for a minimum of six matches, but the FA have still not released their decision.
