Despite Marcelo Bielsa playing down Tyler Roberts’ breach of squad rules on international break, Dean Windass has exclusively told This is Futbol that the Leeds attacker would have known about it following his return to Thorp Arch.
Roberts had featured in Wales’ games with Belgium and Mexico last month, but missed their crucial victory over Czech Republic after he was sent home from the camp along with Hal Robson-Kanu and Rabbi Matondo for breaking a curfew.
Is Bielsa Leeds' best ever manager?
Bielsa responded by saying that it was down to Wales to deal with the situation, and echoed those thoughts by starting the youngster in Leeds’ next two games against Sheffield United and then Manchester City on Saturday.
Those starts extended Roberts’ consecutive run in the Premier League to eight, but Windass has warned the Welshman not to get on the wrong side of the Leeds United boss.
He told This is Futbol:
“I’ve heard a little bit about Tyler Roberts being a Jack the Lad. He’s a confident boy and a talented boy, but you can’t get away with anything.
“It’s about performances and Tyler Roberts has done well, but hasn’t been a higher performer, he’s been in and out. I wouldn’t cross Bielsa.
“He would have known about it when he got to the training ground. Bielsa won’t stand for that. It doesn’t look good on the club.”
