Leeds boss Bielsa cools promotion talk

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has cooled talk about promotion.

The Whites are second on the Championship table following impressive wins over Stoke City and Derby County.

"If you think that we are favourites to go up, we have only played two games so far," he said. "We shouldn't trust this kind of affirmation because we've played only two games.

"Two games are not enough to make conclusions on the team. We all know that. And you know that.

"You ask me a question but you don't believe in it.

"We can't draw perspective after playing just 5 per cent of the Championship. Less than 5 per cent.

"You ask me a question but I'm sure you don't share the concept that gives substance to the question because you have on one side the hope that comes from the fans and on the other side we have to make an analysis, you and me.

"I don't know if my answer is a good one."
