Steve Morison slams Marcelo Bielsa for Leeds United ‘spygate’ conduct

The former Whites striker believes the Leeds boss was out of order with his conduct over the spying incident earlier in the season.

Leeds boss Bielsa was reprimanded earlier in the season for ‘spying’ on a Derby County training session prior to a meeting with the Rams.

Morison was surprised by the ordeal and the situation doesn’t sit right with him.

Morison told News at Den: “I don’t think it’s right. He tried to smokescreen it a little bit saying he does more analysis than anyone else.

“It’s common knowledge that everyone does exactly the same stuff. If he’s got that much information then why did they need to spy as well.

“All that stuff about him watching more games and knowing more stuff about all the players is a load of nonsense. If he did he wouldn’t need to send someone to the ground and watch someone training.”

The legendary Millwall man had an unsuccessful spell at Leeds between 2013 and 2015, scoring five goals in 42 appearances.

 

His record at The Den is decent though, netting 92 goals in 330 games for the club.

TBR Verdict

These comments from Morison suggest that he is keen to crank up the pressure on his former club ahead of Saturday’s contest.

A natural-born goalscorer, Morison didn’t have the best of spells at Elland Road and he now relishes the chance to get one over the Whites.

It remains to be seen whether Morison will play this weekend.

Boss Neil Harris has seen him as a peripheral figure this season and he faces a fight to regain his place in the team.

The veteran striker is clearly desperately unhappy at how Leeds conducted their business earlier in the campaign.

As an old-fashioned talisman that isn’t really a surprise and Morison will be desperate to be given a chance by Harris this weekend.
