Kiko Casilla played well for Leeds United against Sheffield Wednesday in the Yorkshire derby.
Casilla was in action for Leeds in the Yorkshire derby against Wednesday away from home at the Hillsborough Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The former Real Madrid goalkeeper was brilliant in the Championship game and made some important saves, including a superb fingertip save.
Leeds head coach Bielsa was impressed with the 33-year-old and has praised the Spaniard.
Bielsa told Leeds Live about Casilla: “He had an impact on the match today. That was important. He will show good character, good personality. He has trusted experience.”
Important figure at Leeds United
Casilla is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper at Leeds, and he is a key fugue in the team.
Given his wealth of experience and having played for Spanish and European giants Madrid, the 33-year-old is a safe pair of hands and makes the Leeds defenders feel at ease.
True, the former Espanyol star has made some costly errors, but all footballers - including goalkeepers - make mistakes.
Leeds are aiming to finish in the top two of the Championship table this season and clinch automatic promotion to the Premier League.
