Leeds Boss Marcelo Bielsa admits he made a major mistake against Millwall

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has suggested to Leeds Live that he made a mistake against Millwall.

The Whites suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Millwall away from home at The Den in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

Bielsa has said that he should have made the decision to “improve the structure and organisation” in the team in the first half, and not after the break.

Bielsa told Leeds Live: “After the first half, I decided to improve the structure and organisation in the team, but I should have taken the decision in the first half.

“Even if I didn’t take those decisions in the middle of the first half, we were better with one less player, but maybe we realise more this superiority in the second rather than the first half.

“Maybe I could have taken this decision earlier to help the team.”


Over the course of the 90 minutes at The Den on Saturday afternoon, hosts Millwall had 32% of the possession, took 12 shots of which 12 were seven were on penalty, and earned six corners, according to BBC Sport.

Visitors Leeds had 68% of the possession, took five shots of which one was on target, and earned one corner, according to BBC Sport.

The result means that the West Yorkshire outfit are fifth in the Championship table at the moment with 20 points from 11 matches, two points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion.
