Leeds United: Fans show Marcelo Bielsa love for helping Kalvin Phillips

Leeds United fans were left showing Marcelo Bielsa love for the impact the coach has had on Kalvin Phillips during his time at Elland Road. Indeed, one fan called White Answers highlighted the difference the former Marseille man has made to the player’s career.

Prior to Bielsa’s arrival, the supporter claims the midfielder had no clear position, was average and wasn’t particularly rated by fans. However, he went on to say that the 64-year-old has made him a £30m-rated transfer target, one of the best defensive midfielders in the Championship and allowed him to potentially get an England call-up (via The Telegraph).

Taking a look at some figures, Phillips had a Transfermarkt value of just £4.5m prior to the Argentine’s arrival, a number that has risen to £9.9m, showing the improvement in his performances. The club also rejected bids over £20m from multiple Premier League clubs last summer, showing how highly he is valued in the transfer market (via Football Insider). With regards to being the best in the division, he was lauded by talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham, who called him ‘England class’ despite the fact he plays in the second-tier.

Here are some tweets from supporters:
