Tyler Roberts details how Marcelo Bielsa is improving him at Leeds United



Leeds United stretched their unbeaten home run to five matches after a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The victory saw Patrick Bamford score his first goal since August and meant Leeds stayed level on points with Preston North End going into the international break.

United have won many plaudits for their style of play under manager Marcelo Bielsa and it is fair to say the club will be there or thereabouts in the promotion race come the end of the season.

A number of players have notably improved under the Argentine including Kalvin Phillips, Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas.

Another one of those players is 20-year-old, Welsh international, Tyler Roberts, who has started United’s last two games.

Roberts missed the start of the season through a knee-injury but has slowly made his comeback into the starting fold after making five appearances off the bench.

Asked whether playing under Bielsa was helping him, Roberts told Leeds Live: “Massively. He shows me things I wouldn’t have picked up on. He’s very intelligent with football, and of course everyone knows that.

In the meetings we have he shows me things that you wouldn’t even see yourself, so to have him and to learn off him is an amazing thing for me,” Roberts added.

Roberts has scored one goal since returning from injury and when asked what his personal targets are, Roberts said: “Just more starts, I’d like to score more goals, get assists, goal contributions, but the main thing is getting those starts and helping the team get three points every week.”

The Verdict

It’s no doubt Leeds fans have been in awe at Bielsa at some points during his reign and it is quite clear in Roberts’ revelation that the players feel the same.

For the majority of Leeds’ players they wouldn’t have played for a coach of Bielsa’s quality in their careers and for them and the squad it will be a massive boost to their further careers, working with the Argentine.

Roberts has confirmed that Bielsa can spot things where players may have normally missed and is clearly enjoying learning off him.

United fans will be hoping this continues to pay off for the Whites.
