A number of Leeds United fans took to Twitter after seeing a report emerge about what Marcelo Bielsa plans to do whilst the Championship season has been postponed.
According to The Daily Mail, the Argentine chief has decided against handing his players extra time off because of the current worldwide pandemic and has supposedly left those at the club ‘stunned’ with his decision.
It is claimed Bielsa is determined to keep fitness levels at optimal levels, should the season resume as Leeds currently occupy top spot of the Championship and look in good shape to finally make it back to the Premier League.
Indeed, the report started to circulate and do the rounds on social media and it appears many of the Whites’ faithful were delighted with the news, whilst some even suggested that it was hardly a shock or surprise that it would still be business as usual for those at Thorp Arch.
Bielsa is famed for his introduction of ‘Murderball’ at Elland Road, with the likes of Mateusz Klich, Adam Forshaw and skipper Liam Cooper all speaking highly of the training method as they feel it has taken them to another level (per the Yorkshire Evening Post).
Here are just some of the reactions to the latest news…
Absolutely brilliant. And here I was worried about their fitness levels after.

To be fair, the players would feel worse if they had time off than if they keep up their current levels of fitness so it's a smart move IMO.
