Championship

Harrison and Roofe have come on leaps and bounds under Bielsa

Harrison and Roofe have come on leaps and bounds under Bielsa

Leeds United will be desperate to continue their fine form after an impressive start to proceedings in the Championship. 

The Whites have been completely redefined under Marcelo Bielsa as they continue to push towards promotion to the Premier League.

Indeed, the South American has really been able to get the best out of his players so far this season and will continue to develop them in months to come. And, having seen the Whites’ performances already, it’s clear to see that a couple of players have certainly relished his presence at Elland Road.

With that in mind, here’s a look at TWO players that Bielsa has really progressed…

Jack Harrison

Jack Harrison joined on loan from Manchester City during the summer transfer window and has certainly settled down to life well under Marcelo Bielsa.

Indeed, the Englishman struggled to find his feet during his last loan spell at Middlesbrough, but it’s safe to say that he has been able to find the back of the net and looks a constant threat, which can be put down to his progression under the Leeds United boss.

Kemar Roofe

Kemar Roofe did look impressive last season at times and was Leeds United’s standout performer, but he has gone up another level since Marcelo Bielsa has joined the club, scoring four goals and providing two assists.

Indeed, the 63-year-old has put his trust in the forward to lead the line and it’s fair to say that it is certainly paying off, with the sky being the limit for Roofe and Leeds United from here on in.
