Leeds fans react to Bielsa’s comments on Jamie Shackleton

Leeds United saw their winning run under Marcelo Bielsa grind to a halt on Tuesday evening after being held to a 2-2 draw with Swansea City.

The Peacocks endured a tough match in South Wales, rallying from behind to snatch a point after being forced to reshuffle their defensive pack following a late injury to captain Liam Cooper.

Cooper’s absence saw Luke Ayling moved across the defence into the middle and resulted in Jamie Shackleton being utilised down the right side, where he struggled to cope with Swansea’s attacks during the second half.

Bielsa himself identified that issue and, while he praised Shackleton’s attacking performance, he suggested that the teenager needs to work on the defensive side of the game – earning a reaction from a number of Leeds supporters, many of whom were impressed by the 18-year-old.
