Leeds-News: Guillem Balague worries about the team of Marcelo Bielsa this season

That's what Spanish football expert Guillem Balague says.

The Argentine took over the position on the Elland Road during the summer and had the task to finally return the club after 14 years of absence in the Premier League.

The Yorkshire club has been impressive and is currently leading the championship ahead of Sheffield United and Norwich in goal difference.

Bielsa is known for encouraging his team to work tirelessly, both in training and on the field.

"I can not believe Bielsa knows what he needs to reach the players."

However, after 30 league games, Balague are concerned that Leeds players may lose focus during the season.

"What I see is a Bielsa team," he said in a video on his YouTube channel.

"Man marking, run after the ball, trace back, a lot of effort.

"By the way, if you do not make that effort, you're not on the team.

"To be honest, everything is very modern in the way it is put into practice.

"But he's been doing it for a long, long time.

"I've always feared that if the board understands what has been done, Leeds will be respected even when things are not going so well.

"But do the players accept such intensity?

"It's a long season, the championship is a long season.

"I can not believe Bielsa knows what's needed to get the players off to a full Leeds season."

Leeds is back in the championship action tonight as they visit fellow West Brom comrades.

The fight starts at 17.30.
