Leeds United: Fans blast Marcelo Bielsa after his comments on Ryan Edmondson - Leeds United

Leeds United fans were blasting Marcelo Bielsa after he commented on young striker Ryan Edmondson.

The Argentine was questioned on why he hasn’t used the 18-year-old in the first-team squad this season. He claimed that after looking at the 35 players available to him, he chooses those that are the best options. However, the former Olympique Marseille manager also added that Edmondson could be better than Patrick Bamford meaning he would be wrong about not using him (via Phil Hay).

Fans were left lambasting their coach after his comments on the youth player as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Yorkshire faithful:
