Why Leeds won’t panic
Marcelo Bielsa insists he will not panic buy to solve his selection problems and put Leeds United’s “In the next few weeks, we will have Dallas, Berardi, Phillips, Brown, Bamford and Douglas with us, so among the absences, we will have a reduction.
Bielsa could be without seven players for Friday’s clash with Derby County at Elland Road because of injury and suspension as the Championship leaders bid to end their three-match losing run.
But the Leeds boss insists he will not be asking chairman Andrea Radrizzani to get out his chequebook because he believes he can work with the players he already has.
Leeds are looking for a goalkeeper and replacement for Samuel Saiz this month and Bielsa insists quality is more important than quantity.
If the club can bring in players, it will be only if they are better than the players that we have.
In the next few weeks, we will have Dallas, Berardi, Phillips, Brown, Bamford and Douglas with us, so among the absences, we will have a reduction.
That’s why I clearly say that if nobody comes, we will solve the problems anyway.
