Chelsea keeper Kepa backing Bielsa's Leeds for promotion

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is backing Leeds United for promotion.

Kepa played for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa at Athletic Bilbao.

He told El Desmarque about Bielsa: "He influenced me a lot. His offensive concepts, his way of seeing football ... is very different.

"They were spectacular years, I consider him a great coach and I have very good memories of him.

"I wish him the best, and hopefully next season we can face each other in the Premier if Bielsa goes up with Leeds."
