Leeds Utd manager Bielsa insists Rodrigo improving after Newcastle goal

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa believes striker Rodrigo is improving after getting a goal against Newcastle United.

The Whites played out a terrific game against the Magpies at home.

While the match was even for large portions, Leeds eventually raced ahead and won the game 5-2.

Rodrigo scored one of the key goals in the game, and his manager was delighted with the player's effort.

"The ones [goals in the match] I have most in my memory at the moment are the Rodrigo one and the last one from Harrison," Bielsa said post-game, as reported by Leeds Live.

"As he gains more minutes, he improves every time and today he had a lot of incidents in the game," he added, when asked about Rodrigo's performance in the game.
