During the pre-game press conference ahead of our Yorkshire Derby clash with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa gave a quite in-depth answer when he was tasked with questions about the ongoing Patrick Bamford vs Eddie Nketiah debate amongst the fans.

Bamford is the regular starter but following Saturday’s clash, he is now nine without a goal and sits on four for the campaign. Nketiah has scored more recently and his effort in our last game against Preston took him to five for the season.

Bielsa’s full explanation can be found by Clicking Here but in essence, it’s obvious that he feels Bamford’s overall game play and team ethic is of more advantage to us than Nketiah’s style, which is more focused on scoring for himself.

Understandable really and Bamford has come in for praise this year for the way he’s better leading the line this time around.

Fans had the typical reaction to his words, especially the one crack where he admitted ‘I am not 100% sure what I’m saying’, as that certainly made me smile, but ultimately you either love Bielsa or you love Bielsa I think.
