Leeds United: Fans shower Salim Lamrani with love after release of interview and news of book

Leeds United fans were showering Salim Lamrani with love after Marcelo Bielsa’s former translator released an interview on his time with the Whites as well as revealed news of an upcoming book.

The journalist acted as an interpreter for the manager during his time at Lille and for his debut season with the side last campaign, and obviously enjoyed a close bond with the enigmatic gaffer. However, he seemed to endure an acrimonious departure after falling out with the Argentine. According to Lamrani himself, he made ‘several’ mistakes when translating Bielsa’s words in press conferences last year (via La Nacion).

One fan was clearly a big supporter of Lamrani as he lavished him with praise.

Adam Forshaw revealed to BBC Radio Five Live that the 64-year-old coach still talks to his players through an interpreter. However, events during his pre-match conferences this year has shown that he may well speak more English than he is willing to admit (via HITC).

Fans were showing Lamrani a lot of love after the release of his interview with a French publication and revelation of his book as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:

Leeds fans, do you think Lamrani should’ve left the club at the end of last season? Let us know your thoughts!
