Marcelo Bielsa spotted on Twitter at Harrogate Town match

Marcelo Bielsa spotted on Twitter at Harrogate Town match

Leeds United will be thankful for a long week as they look to prepare for their game against Wigan Athletic on Sunday.

The Whites have had a number of injury concerns over the course of the season and Marcelo Bielsa will be pleased that his side have a chance to get some rest, rather than having to turn out for two competitive matches in a short period of time.

However, it appears that the football does not quite stop for the Argentine, as he was pictured on Twitter by a couple of different people in attendance at Harrogate Town as they took on Barrow on Tuesday night.

It is understood that he was with Director of Football Victor Orta at Wetherby Road as the hosts ran out 4-2 winners in their Conference Premier clash.

It is likely he was in attendance to see how Liam Kitching was performing during his loan spell at Harrogate, rather than looking for rising stars in the game.

The Verdict:

Bielsa is obsessive when it comes to football so it does not really come as a surprise to see him making the most of a long week and taking the opportunity to watch some of his young players in action.

The Argentine has already used some of his academy players in the first-team and is not scared of playing them if he deems them ready, so he could be keeping close tabs on how well Kitching is currently performing at Harrogate.

However, with Orta also in attendance, there could be a possibility that they were also having a look at what both clubs had to offer, as Leeds will likely head into the transfer market in January to keep their promotion efforts alive.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
