​Leeds boss Bielsa rules out Phillips start against Wolves

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa reveals Kalvin Phillips is not likely to start against Wolves in the Premier League.

The Elland Road club are desperate to pick up three points in the league, as they are currently involved in a relegation fight at the bottom of the table.

Phillips is among many first team players sidelined with injury.

"Kalvin is healthy, but he hasn't competed for three weeks," Bielsa said.

"If he played on Saturday it would be far too quick. After three weeks out, it's necessary [for] more football training. And in this stage he's done training sessions for recovery and in physical preparation and progressive work with the ball.

"I think that to think of him for Saturday would be to bring him back too soon before he's back at his best."
