Leeds United: Fans frustrated after Graham Smyth’s claims over Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference emerge

Leeds United: Fans frustrated after Graham Smyth’s claims over Marcelo Bielsa’s press conference emerge - Leeds United

Marcelo Bielsa has been at Leeds United since the summer of 2018 and many things have improved, such as the club’s position in the Championship. However, one thing that is proving tricky is finding someone to translate the Argentine’s words into English.

According to Graham Smyth of Yorkshire Evening Post, the former Marseille man gets ‘lost in translation’. The reporter went into great detail over how the head coach was posed the wrong question by his assistant Diego Flores, asked by Stuart Reyner, in relation to Kiko Casilla in yesterday’s pre-match thoughts.

One fan labelled the situation as ‘awkward’.

Salim Lamrani was Bielsa’s translator until he left last summer, which according to Phil Hay, happened because the relationship between the two men soured. Now, Flores holds the role and as seen above, he’s may not be the right man to hold such a position after his clear mistranslation. Fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on yesterday’s events.

Let’s take a look at some tweets:
