Bielsa gets a few laughs with multilingual press room banter

The Leeds United manager, through his translator, showed he has a good sense of humour and shared a joke with a journalist in yesterday's press conference.


Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa showed he has a good sense of humour - and understands English well enough to have a bit of banter with the press. Speaking through his translator, the Argentinean asked why he didn't see one particular journalist at Thorp Arch a couple of days ago.

"I had a day off with my family", the reporter replied.

"Tell him that the person they sent to cover for him was a much better reporter than he is!", quipped Bielsa.
