Leeds United round-up: Bielsa’s old boss has no regrets, Brown chomping at the bit, Cooper’s rallying call

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Leeds United.

No Bielsa regret

Gerard Lopez, the president of French side Lille, has stated he does not regret his appointment of Marcelo Bielsa last season.

The Argentine, who has led Leeds United to a positive start to the current campaign, struggled to implement any success during his time at the French side.

However, the French side’s president does not regret the appointment, believing it was the right move to go with an ambitious swoop.

Brown hopes

Leeds United attacker Izzy Brown has been discussing his hopes for returning to first-team action.

The Chelsea loanee is still working on his recovery from a serious knee injury and is hoping to play a big role for Leeds in the second half of the season.

 

He spoke to LUTV this week and suggested that while he was ready to be patient and bide his time he is eager to get stuck into the action.

Cooper call

Leeds captain Liam Cooper has called on his team-mates to come good against Sheffield Wednesday in their next outing, after suffering their first defeat in the Championship at the weekend.

Leeds lost 2-1 to Birmingham City at Elland Road, inflicting the first defeat in the league for Marcelo Bielsa since he took over at the club.

The Scottish defender warned the players that losing two on the bounce was a dangerous precedent to set in the Championship, and hopes things can turn around quickly.
