When Marcelo Bielsa called a press conference on Wednesday, the hearts of every Leeds fan in the country briefly stopped for fear that he may resign amidst the ‘Spygate’ controversy, however what the Argentine did instead has blown the minds of, not just the Whites faithful, but every football fan.
The Argentine incurred a media storm after admitting to sending a spy to Derby County’s training ground prior to the their 2-0 win last Friday but less than a week later – and with the assistance of a spectacular PowerPoint presentation – he revealed that he had been doing so all season and spent an insane amount of time analysing each of their opponents’ play-style using match footage.
With the Elland Road outfit currently top of the Championship and the wheels not looking like coming off any time soon, it would seem crime does pay – even though the 63-year-old isn’t technically breaking any rules.
Defender Pontus Jansson couldn’t hide his amazement at the boss’ presser as he took to Twitter in brilliant fashion, you can find the best of Leeds fans’ reaction to what he had to say below…
This has been my greatest day as a Leeds fan, better than promotion or beating the scum, this has been amazing!
