Leeds United fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest video of Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa. 

This comes after the official Leeds Twitter account shared a post on their page that contained a video of Bielsa speaking in a recent press conference about the Yorkshire club’s clash against League Two side Crawley Town in the FA Cup.

1 of 7

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

In the video, when asked what is impressive about Crawley, Bielsa said that they are a team that “responds to a direct approach” and that their “defensive organisation is also traditional.”

This post from the official Leeds Twitter account then gathered a lot of replies from Leeds fans who were quick to share their thoughts on the matter.

So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about Bielsa’s comments on Crawley? 

“Literally watched all their games this season hasn’t he” 

@edgeylad

You just know he has watched the last 3 seasons, home and away!.. I love him!!..#lufc

@Mathsnelling

“Bet the Crawley players are buzzing with that” 

@Jim16545516

“Gotta mix team up not just all young ones can’t risk it” 

@russcausier

Histon, Rochdale, Sutton and Newport JUST WIN!!!”

@chandxn_

“Wouldn’t mind a little cup run, of course we should focus on the league but it’s great if we can utilise players like poveda and Greenwood in the cup” 

@B_Huds0n

“He sounds poorly. Keep safe and well Marcelo”

@Jimmay82

“Watch us lose”

@LUFCLuke_

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Leeds fans know that Bielsa has done all sorts of preparations for this FA Cup game against Crawley.

Do you think Bielsa will play a strong Leeds side against Crawley?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Also, it’s nice to see some Leeds fans hoping to see some of the club’s younger players get a run out in the match. With Leeds set to take on 6th placed Southampton next week in the Premier League, it would make sense for Bielsa to play some young players against Crawley so he can rest some of his more senior players to be ready for their next league clash.
