Leeds boss Bielsa talks Spurs pair Conte and Kane

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is ready to face Antonio Conte's Tottenham this weekend.

Bielsa was asked what he expects when facing Conte.

He said, "In football it is difficult to create something that has not been seen before. What does unify all the coaches is the virtues they extract from the players that they coach.

"That demands how you prepare them and convince them. I think in those two aspects, to prepare them and convince them, he is a master."

Bielsa was also asked about Harry Kane's goalscoring during the international break.

"For a goalscorer to score is always good for them," Bielsa said. "Having said that, with or without the international goals, he's a player to be respected.

"Conte is a manager who has a set style of play distinguished from all other managers.

"He is a genuine representative of his country as a manager. He's triumphed in every team he's managed.

"He's a reference in world football not only in the league he participates in and he is a coach that gets very high performances from his players."
