We performed poorly, says Leeds boss Bielsa

Leeds manager, Marcelo Bielsa, has blamed his boys for not living up to expectations when they lost 2-0 to Brighton on Saturday.

“We didn’t play well. The victory for the opponent was fair. We created very little danger and it was difficult for us to recover the ball.

“The game was hard with the height of their centre-backs. We couldn’t avoid them initiating the play nor could we overcome them trying to get in behind.”
