Norwich among the clubs complain about Leeds

We heard on Saturday lunchtime that 11 Championship sides had complained about Leeds United and it turns out second placed Norwich City are one of them.

A statement from the club read: ‘Following the comments made by Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa this week, Norwich City and a number of Championship clubs have written to the EFL asking for full disclosure.’

Canaries boss Daniel Farke discussed Bielsa before his side beat Birmingham City on Friday night, which cut Leeds gap at the top of the table to one point:

“With this situation I will speak about quality, style and class. We are a club full of quality and full of class

“Everyone is responsible how he prepares his team for the challenge. We all have different ways and different styles.

“In general, I just can say we as a club don’t send any spies out and if there is a session behind closed doors we respect that.

“That is our way. If a club or a head coach does it in a different way that is for others to judge. If there is a spy around to be honest I am not so sure they would realise what is happening.

“If you are watching from a bridge 200 metres away you can probably tell the difference between Grant Hanley and Emi Buendia.

“I am full of respect for the career of Marcelo Bielsa. The way they are playing is a big credit to him. Maybe 10 years ago it was the case that one day before a game there was a tactical session when you play your starting line-up.

“Nowadays I don’t think there are any secret set-pieces or whatever.

“Maybe you can see if the players are in a good mood or the coach stays indoors at the training ground but there is only so much you can find out.”
