Some Leeds United fans were showing their love for one of Marcelo Bielsa’s former right-hand men after he tweeted about Kiko Casilla.
Salim Lamrani was the man in question as Bielsa’s former translator lavished the former Real Madrid ‘keeper with praise following his charge for racially abusing Jonathan Leko. One sentence in his testimony, posted on Twitter, read: “In spite of his record, he is devoid of any vanity.”
Do you believe Kiko Casilla is guilty of racially abusing Jonathan Leko?
The charge has left the fate of our team’s promotion bid in the hands of youngster Illan Meslier, who will be the side’s number one ‘keeper for at least the next seven games.
However, should he suffer any sort of injury or drop in form then you would imagine Bielsa would turn to a figure, who is even younger than the 19-year-old. This would be 18-year-old Elia Caprile, who joined the Yorkshire outfit in the January transfer window and was on the bench in the last fixture against Hull City last weekend.
Supporters were left showing their love and support for Lamrani after his post about the 33-year-old as they took to Twitter to react:
Perfect Salim, excellent observation from someone who was inside and really knows the man. Thank you for this.
