Leeds boss Bielsa: Injuries no excuse

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa insists there's no excuses for their slow start to the season.

Bielsa refuses to use a growing injury list as an excuse for his side's poor start.

When asked if the absence of key players had affected Leeds' form this season, Bielsa said: “No, we have a sufficient players and we're prepared to adapt to the absences.

“Against Fulham we had eight or nine players unavailable. I couldn't say it does not matter that so many players were not available.

“Of course, it's an added difficulty when players in the same position are also injured.

“But for a long time I've been working here now. There comes a time when you have to demonstrate the project can resolve these uncomfortable situations."
