Leeds: Phil Hay confirms Benoit Delaval departure -Leeds United News

Leeds United correspondent Phil Hay has confirmed that fitness coach Benoit Delaval has left the club.

The Lowdown: Clavijo’s exit

It has been a week of change at Elland Road, with the Whites parting ways with Marcelo Bielsa after a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on the weekend.

Will Marsch keep Leeds up?

Yes, I still have faith!

Yes, I still have faith!

No, we are finished!

No, we are finished!

Jesse Marsch has since been announced as the Argentine’s successor and is set to keep goalkeeper coach Marcos Abad and head of analysis Guillermo Alonso.

Performance analyst Andres Clavijo, known better for being Bielsa’s translator, confirmed on Wednesday that he would be leaving the club, and Hay had more exit news for supporters.

The Latest: Hay’s under the radar news

Hay was asked by a fan on Twitter regarding Delaval and if he is set to follow Bielsa and Clavijo out the door at Thorp Arch.

The reliable reporter simply said, ‘he is, yes’, with his update going under the radar due to being part of a thread rather than an original tweet, receiving just two likes.

The Verdict: Marsch to make his mark?

It doesn’t exactly come as a shock that Delaval has left with Bielsa, his assistants and Clavijo, with the Frenchman joining alongside the enigmatic Argentine back in 2018.

He worked wonders on the club’s fitness levels, which allowed the Leeds squad to cope with Bielsa’s intense demands across three-and-a-half seasons, earning promotion to the Premier League in the process.

However, his departure will now allow Marsch to put his mark on the backroom staff setup, with Cameron Toshack already coming in as his assistant.
