Plenty of Leeds United fans have been left rather upset after hearing what Marcelo Bielsa had to say about the January transfer market.
Speaking after his side’s 2-1 away loss in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur, the club manager was asked about Leeds’ approach in the upcoming winter window.
His reply was shared by esteemed journalist Phil Hay on Twitter, who explained that Bielsa feels “it would depend on getting better players than he has, and they can be expensive”.
He added: [Bielsa] says adding to the group ‘should not be evaluated without looking at the economic possibilities’.”
In a follow-up post, Hay also stated that the Argentine reiterated that he believes Leeds ‘have already invested heavily in players on his watch’.
Do Leeds need to spend in January to survive?
After hearing the news, a number of the club’s supporters seemed to deem this as an unwillingness to spend in January. This didn’t seem to go down well.
Here’s what these Leeds fans said…
There’s no hiding their frustration for these Leeds United supporters. They clearly feel the squad needs some investment if they are to enjoy the second half of the season.
To be fair to them, it’s been a pretty underwhelming campaign for the club so far. Indeed, after 12 Premier League games played, they have won just twice and sit 17th in the table as a result.
Sadly, however, judging from Bielsa’s words, they may have to make do with what they’ve got for a little while yet.
