Bielsa spy gate press conference

Bielsa opens up about promotion rivals Norwich

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has discussed promotion rivals Norwich City and praised the quality of Daniel Farke’s side.

The two side’s currently occupy the Championship’s automatic promotion places, with Norwich a point ahead of Bielsa’s second-placed Leeds side.

Leeds ran out 3-0 winners when the side’s met at Carrow Road in the opening weeks of the season, but Bielsa insists the result flattered his team.

‘When we played against Norwich they had more chances to score than us and we won that game.’ Bielsa told the press ahead of his sides away game against Bolton tomorrow.

‘The only difference is that we scored goals when we had chances and they didn’t. When you see the result, you see it is a huge difference, but when you take a look at both performances, there was no big difference between the two teams.

‘Just because you miss a goal, it means you are not efficient- not that you have played bad. We can say Norwich have an important creative profile.’
