Marcelo Bielsa faced the press yesterday ahead of what promises to be an entertaining clash between Brentford and The Whites at Elland Road and he was asked a rather strange question. on Tuesday night, Steven Bruce had a cabbage thrown at him during Aston Villa’s clash with Preston and Bielsa was asked what he made of it, and his reply was brilliant.
Bielsa talking about Steve Bruce having a cabbage thrown at him on Tuesday night: "I don't see this as barbaric as you do. But that is because you have better habits." #lufc

The Argentine claimed that he didn’t see the act of throwing a cabbage at Bruce as being as barbaric as everyone is making out, before adding that this is because we have better habits. The Leeds fans loved Bielsa’s response and all saw the funny side in what he was saying, just giving them yet another reason to fawn over their gaffer who has brought them so much joy since his appointment.
It’s fair to say we can’t see anything being thrown at Bielsa in the near or distant future with the way things are going and if he can win against Brentford tomorrow then that will only enhance his already glowing reputation with the supporters. El Loco continues to impress, surprise and please the Whites and as long as he’s at the club it’s hard to see the Leeds fans finding themselves unhappy with the way things are going.
You can see what The Whites made of Bielsa’s comment here:
Gotta love him…

The Leeds fans love Bielsa and will be keen to see him stay at Elland Road for many years to come.
