Bielsa says Leeds will take FA Cup opponents Crawley seriously

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa says they'll be taking FA Cup opponents Crawley Town seriously.

Bielsa does not want to take it lightly and wants it clear he will respect the competition and Whites fans.

However, he will also use it as an obvious opportunity to rotate and give players, who deserve to play more, the chance to show what they can do.

“The evaluation of each football player allows you to build the team," he said. “I'm going to give you some arguments I use to build the team.

“We have players that are not usually starters but they deserve to be starters. So I take these players into account for the FA [Cup] competition.

“You also have players who are starters, but they need to play too. You also have players who prefer to play rather than to rest.

“These arguments are the ones I take into account to build the starting XI."
