Bielsa urges Llorente to ignore Athletic Bilbao jeers

Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa has called on Fernando Llorente to ignore the anger of home fans.

Bielsa is set to stick with Llorente - who has signalled his intention to leave the club at the end of the season - despite continuing abuse from home fans angry at the player's recent public announcement.

Bielsa said: "He will have to cope with the criticism. I assume he will learn to take it because it has happened before. It happened (against Sparta), and there is no guarantee that it will not happen again."
