Many Leeds United supporters have taken notice of a moment from their side’s win over West Bromwich Albion, where head coach Marcelo Bielsa was caught on camera reacting to Jack Harrison having a blunder moment late into proceedings.
Eddie Nketiah or Patrick Bamford?
Bielsa has called on Harrison to start each of the Whites’ 10 league fixtures so far this season (WhoScored), and allowed the Manchester City-owned forward to see out the full 90 minutes on Tuesday night as United beat West Brom 1-0 to return to the top of the Championship table.
It was not the 22-year-old’s best display at Elland Road, however, as he once again found pockets of space on the wing to offer a threat, only to lack the accuracy needed with his final pass.
Leeds Live saw fit to award the former England youth international a six out of ten for his efforts in their player ratings, and noted that he was fortunate to be bailed out by Ezgjan Alioski before the North Macedonia defender scored what proved to be the winning goal.
Harrison’s struggles continued into the closing stages, as well, as the Stoke-on-Trent-born forward enjoyed a late vaunt down the wing, but he would run the ball out of play before being able to deliver a cutback to Mateusz Klich in the centre.
His late blunder sparked a furious reaction from boss Bielsa in the dugout, who was caught on camera slamming his fists to the ground as he yelled in anger at the wasted opportunity to all but guarantee the three points.
Leeds managed to see out the tie to beat the Baggies and overtake the Hawthorns natives at the top of the second tier table, but many United supporters shared their manager’s frustrations with Harrison.
Here are some of the messages shared…
