Ex-Leeds defender Parker: No reason for Bielsa to change

Former Leeds United defender Ben Parker has dismissed doubts around manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites' momentum from their good start to the season was checked before the international break as they suffered back-to-back 4-1 defeats to Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

"To be fair, I think a lot of groups of teams so far in the Premier League, they are in the same situation as us, done well in parts, could improve in others and it is going to be a season like that," Parker said on LUTV.

"But as long as we just keep remaining true to ourselves, what we like to do, our philosophy, closing down working hard.

"Do not change because you have a couple of bad results, you are going to get that throughout the course of the season.

"But focus on the positives, and just tweak a little bit of those few negatives as well."
