Leeds boss Bielsa: Vieira has transformed Crystal Palace

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa has been impressed by the work of Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace ahead of tonight's clash.

Under Vieira, the Eagles are are currently 11th in the Premier League table. Bielsa praised his opposite number on how the team plays under his guidance.

“He has changed the style of the team, without too many signings," Bielsa explained, on Vieira.

“It's a team that is solvent, with a careful management of the ball. They have clear positive results.

“Obviously the function of a coach is for their team to play as he desires. It's admirable how deeply he's been able to install his ideas at Crystal Palace.

“When a team puts a ball at risk, it makes you have to solve certain things. If the opponent gives you the ball, it is other situations you have to overcome.

“That happens constantly throughout the league, every game those situations are changing. We need to be ready to come up against certain teams and different philosophies."
