​Bielsa lauds Leeds players for their performances

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is saying the players should take the plaudits and not himself for their good performances in the Premier League this season.

"Coaches don't make great players. The ambition, the character, the determination of a player is what allows them to be great players," he said.

"Players improve, they drop down, then they improve again. You are attributing a capacity which I don't think I have.

"I'm joined with the player in trying to get the best out of him so that he can show all his capabilities. There are many virtues that players don't use because it's more comfortable not to use them.

"To leave the state of comfort and to get out of the comfort and go above and beyond is not linked to a manager, but it's linked to the ambition of a player."

"The most competitive players get the best out of themselves," he said. "They show everything that they bring."
