Rival boss sent SIX spies to Norwich win as he targets top spot

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa sent six members of staff to Norwich’s draw at Wigan

The Yorkshire giants are currently second in the Championship but have the title in their sights.

Norwich top the pile but failure to win today leaves them just four points clear.

Bielsa sparked controversy earlier in the season when one of his coaches was caught spying on a Derby training session ahead of their fixture.

The Argentine admitted he always sent somebody to check up on his upcoming opponents and Leeds were ultimately fined £200,000.

Bielsa justified his actions with an in-depth press conference highlighting the extensive analysis he applies to each game.

And it appears his focus hasn’t dwindled in the season run-in.

Norwich fought back to earn a point at Wigan on Sunday thanks to Teemu Pukki’s 28th goal of the season.

Bielsa’s spy mission comes amid news that:

“Just the six members of Bielsa’s backroom staff were sent to the draw with Norwich.”

Leeds take on Wigan at Elland Road on Friday and according to the Yorkshire Evening Post’s chief football writer Phil Hay, there were six members of Bielsa’s team checking them out.

He tweeted: “Someone who was at Wigan today tells me that just the six members of Bielsa’s backroom staff were sent to the draw with Norwich earlier.
