Leeds United fans react as Bielsa confirms Casilla will start vs Bristol City

Marcelo Bielsa’s pre-match press conference was, as predicted, full of comments that only served to stir the pot with many Leeds United fans.

Of course, with everything that’s been going on with Kiko Casilla of late, the Whites’ first-choice goalkeeper was once again at the centre of the discussion as the Argentine coach was asked whether he’ll play against Bristol City or not.

Is Casilla still a liability?

Yes!

Yes!

Nope!

Nope!

And since Bielsa confirmed the Spaniard will retain his place in the side, many of the fans simply couldn’t believe it because they view him as someone who could cost them points and even their promotion to the top flight.

They were quick to doubt their gaffer’s stubbornness on the matter.

Some couldn’t believe what they’d heard from their boss.

Amid their frustration, two fans couldn’t help but take it as a really bad joke and laughed it off because there’s simply no justifying his faith in Casilla.

It seems that for all his genius Bielsa is slowly altering opinions among the fanbase…

One fan jokingly said that the translator should immediately be fired because there’s no way that Bielsa could actually have confirmed that Casilla and Bamford will both play in the next match.

Finally, there were some fans who felt sorry for Illan Meslier, who’s still waiting for his proper chance with the senior squad.

If he doesn’t get an opportunity now that Casilla has gone off the boil, when will his time come?

Meanwhile, a Sky Sports pundit has delivered a bold verdict on Leeds United’s talented teenager
