Leeds fans react to Phil Hay’s revelation about Bielsa and his previous translator

Things may not be going as some fans want on the transfer front, with anger directed at Victor Orta for his lack of action, but Phil Hay’s latest update is also something fans don’t want to hear.

The Atheltic journalist has explained that he attempted to contact former translator Salim Lamrani, but his appeal was rejected. Hay also added that Lamrani left the club on bad terms due to things turning sour between him and Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds have continued to be successful on the pitch under the Argentine, but it is likely disappointing news for supporters to stomach given how popular Lamrani was – supporters even had a song for him.

It seems like quite an overreaction to someone who had no influence over first-team affairs at the club, and fans should instead concentrate on the fact that they still have a great manager in Bielsa at the helm.

After last season’s disappointment in missing out on promotion he has taken Leeds to second place this term, and if he is able to add over the January window then Leeds will be in a great position to progress their promotion bid.

A lack of transfer news seems to have created avenues for other discussions, however, with a few fans speculating as to why the relationship between Lamrani and Bielsa declined.

Footballing reasons would certainly make a great deal of sense, particularly for a stubborn and authoritative manager like the Argentine, but some fans disagree, suggesting it comes down to the more pertinent issue of Lamrani not fulfilling his role sufficiently.

In other news, Leeds fans have been discussing a player in the squad and what Bielsa should do with him after witnessing him in the under 23s.
