Pizza Hut End Leeds United With Fantastic Banter Over Spygate

Marcelo Bielsa

"Of course if you observe something without authorisation of the person involved, we call this spying".

The Argentine gave a sensational 75-minute press conference earlier this evening in response to the "spygate" scandal, following revelations he sent a member of staff to watch Derby County train prior to their game last Friday.

"To get a PowerPoint presentation put together about stuff that is pretty basic in football to be honest, and the amazement that it's been met with, is quite amusing to people in football".

"What's happened is that the general public, and some of the media, think we turn up and play five-a-side and go home and then when they do get a wee taster of what we actually do day-to-day and get exposed to it, it's groundbreaking". "I just think it's weird".

"I don't think it's normal practice in this country and I don't think it's sportsmanlike behaviour".

"We should not get ahead ourselves".

"Danny Graham came right through the middle against someone who was a mismatch physically and headed the ball in the net", explained Mowbray.

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa enhanced his legend status with an extraordinary press conference at Thorp Arch in which he unveiled the incredible lengths he goes to, to find out as much information as he can on opponents.

Barr Vows To Let Mueller Finish His Russia Work - And Promises 'Transparency'
Earlier this year, Barr reportedly sent an "unsolicited memo" to the Justice Department , in which he spoke out against the probe. Barr said in his statement a sense of public service compelled him to have his name put forth after some initial concerns.

"We've got to take one more step in the right direction, all of this is put to bed for the players now".

Both the Football Association and the English Football League are investigating the incident after Derby submitted a formal complaint and Bielsa said his hour-long press conference was a means of aiding the enquiry.

An EFL statement said: "The EFL has today written to Leeds United requesting their observations in regard to an incident that took place in the vicinity of Derby County's training ground on Thursday 10 January, 2019".

Leeds won last Friday's match 2-0 at Elland Road to stay four points clear at the top of the Championship, as they look to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.

"It's certainly a league issue now because it's the league, it's every team, so it's up to them to decide what goes from now", he said.

"It's not seen as a good thing, but it is not a violation of the law", Bielsa said.

'When you watch an opponent, you are looking for specific information.

"It does show you what their thinking is".
