Many Leeds United fans were left stunned after hearing of an impressive statistic regarding Marcelo Bielsa’s away record following their narrow win over Middlesbrough last night.
According to Jonny Cooper, the Yorkshire outfit have won all 19 games away from Elland Road when they have taken the lead during Bielsa’s reign. A late first half goal from Mateusz Klich was enough as the Whites saw off the Riverside Stadium outfit and retained their five-point gap to third-placed Fulham.
One fan called the record amazing.
