Leeds United round-up: Bielsa watches Kitching, Roofe on ‘recurring’ problem and Cibicki scores again

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

Bielsa in Harrogate

Marcelo Bielsa is always busy. The Leeds United boss was spotted at a non-league match yesterday. The Leeds boss and director of football Victor Orta were both in attendance as Harrogate Town took on Barrow last night. Harrogate won the game 4-2.

The most likely reason for the visit from Bielsa would be the presence of Liam Kitching. The Leeds owned talent, 18, is currently on loan at Harrogate and is considered a bright prospect for the future.

Recurring nightmare

Kemar Roofe says his side need to stop conceding from set-pieces. In a wide-ranging interview with the Yorkshire Post, he spoke of his promotion hopes and the recent birth of his daughter.

But he also spoke of Leeds’s struggles at defending set-pieces.

 

He says it has become a ‘recurring thing’ and that the players will be working on putting an end to their leaky set-play defending.

Cibicki scores

Pawel Cibicki continues to give Marcelo Bielsa food for thought on his loan spell at Molde. The Swedish attacker scored again yesterday, a crucial equaliser against IK Start.

Molde went on to win the game 3-1 and the Leeds loanee has been in good form for the club.

His spell at Molde is due to expire in January however, with the Norwegian season ending in two weeks it is possible he may return to Thorp Arch earlier.
