Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa believes that no other supporters have the same influence that the Leeds United fans have on his side.
The Whites will be backed by another sell out following when they make the long journey south to face Millwall on Saturday in what should be a fantastic atmosphere.
Supporters of the Yorkshire club have really backed their new manager this season, with crowds at Elland Road comfortably surpassing 30,000 for each game, whilst away tickets are also snapped up.
And, Bielsa certainly appreciates that backing, telling the club’s official site just how important the fans are to the team:
“I can’t think of any more fans who have any more influence than ours, it is important to us to receive support. Ive been doing this job for the past 30 years and I’ve never been affected by the lack of civility from fans.”
In fairness, the team have finally given the long-suffering Whites crowd something to cheer about this season.
Bielsa’s side head to the New Den as Championship leaders and have played some magnificent football so far under the Argentinian.
Even though Leeds have always had good support, there is a real connection and bond between the players and fans now which hasn’t been there.
Ultimately, that’s entirely down to Bielsa who has transformed the club despite only taking over in the summer.
It’s going to be a long, hard season though and the supporters backing could be crucial as the campaign progresses.
