Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has told The Daily Mail that head coach Marcelo Bielsa does not get mad after defeats.

Bamford, who joined Leeds in the summer of 2018, has stated how Bielsa reacts after matches.

The former Chelsea and Nottingham Forest striker has added how the Argentine is with the players.

Bamford told The Daily Mail about Bielsa: “He’s not stand-offish but he likes to keep it professional. He won’t get close to a certain player. He keeps everyone at arm’s length.

“If we win, he won’t say anything. He will come in, give everyone a hug or a high five, then walk back out.

“If we lose, he will pace up and down the dressing room, speaking in Spanish and Diego (Flores, Bielsa’s assistant) will translate what he’s saying. He never goes mad straight after the game.”

Interesting approach

Bielsa is loved and adored by the Leeds supporters, and the Argentine has also got a lot of fans outside the club.

The Argentine comes across as an enigmatic figure, and his approach to wins and defeats is very interesting indeed.

While some managers would be very angry and annoyed if their teams suffer defeats, Bielsa seems to have a calm and collected approach to results.

No wonder the Leeds players respond to Bielsa and enjoy working under him so much.

Leeds won automatic promotion from the Championship at the end of last season and are doing quite well in the Premier League at the moment.

The West Yorkshire club are currently eighth in the standings with seven points from four matches and will face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.
