Marcelo Bielsa faces the media for the first time this week later today as all eyes turn to Saturday’s lunchtime clash with Middlesbrough.
The Elland Road head coach will face questions on the team’s response to Saturday’s defeat to Norwich City, the latest injury news and his possible changes.
Gaetano Berardi and Stuart Dallas are understood to be the final two senior members of the first-team squad still suffering with injury.
Aside from Bielsa’s media briefing, we are also expecting to hear from Patrick Bamford, last weekend’s goal scorer and the former Boro forward returning to Riverside Stadium.
Saiz comments on loan
Here is a flavour of some of the comments Saiz made yesterday. All quoted by Eurosport and translated by Google.
“If the team was down there, nobody would say anything about Getafe or comment on any of this, the team is there on its own merits and we go to the limit like all the teams that want to win, but always respecting the opponent and all the actions of the game. league demands that we must go to the limit in each play and we are what we do,” he said.
