Leeds United: Fans slam Marcelo Bielsa for comment refering to Eddie Nketiah

Leeds United: Fans slam Marcelo Bielsa for comment refering to Eddie Nketiah - Leeds United

Some Leeds United fans were furious with one of the remarks Marcelo Bielsa made following their defeat to Queens Park Rangers in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Whites failed to take advantage of playing ahead of their rivals when Nahki Wells fired home controversially midway through the first half to give the hosts all three points (BBC).

However, it isn’t like Leeds did not have the chance to draw level as they were awarded a penalty in the second half. Unfortunately for the Elland Road outfit, Patrick Bamford stepped up and missed the spot-kick from 12 yards out.

To make matters worse for Bielsa and the club’s faithful, Kalvin Phillips was shown a red card with just minutes on the game left to play.

Although fans may have been infuriated with what they saw on the pitch from their players, many appeared to be fuming after Phil Hay tweeted out a remark from the manager following the defeat.

Bielsa was said to have stated that he missed a player like Eddie Nketiah on the bench, presumably as an individual that he could turn to in order to change how the game was going.

The Arsenal man was recalled by his parent club earlier at the beginning of the month (Sky Sports) after he was, perhaps, deemed not to have played regular football and fans slammed the South American after hearing the comment.

Here are just some of their reactions…

Leeds fans, what did you make of Bielsa’s remark? Let us know below!
