Bielsa not keen

Reports last night that Bielsa is not happy with the clubs timing of trip to Australia and would prefer it if the club stayed at Thorpe Arch. Today however, it's now being reported that Bielsa is set to leave several key players behind.

I've always felt the Australia trip was unnecessary and planned too late in the pre season window, I feel they should have already been over there and returning this week, not going there. I think Bielsa makes a good point if these reports are true. Leeds also left behind pretty much all senior stars from the trip to Burma under PH.

Klich not flown. I think the international players might be staying home to catch up on fitness as they came back later than others.

No news from the club at all though.

“Helder Costa, Jack Harrison, Ben White, Liam McCarron, Jack Clarke, Ezgjan Alioski, Mateusz Klich, and Jamie Shackleton will all miss the Australia tour as the rest of the squad jets off to Perth this afternoon.”

Great way to prefer the squad for next season, split it up for 2 weeks

Looking like the same starting line-up as for York apart from Phillips for McAlmont.

It says that Bielsa is still in Leeds and is going later next week for the Man U game.

He will have to go early next week as the game is on Weds.

It seems sensible to split the squad at this stage.
