Marcelo Bielsa: The importance of the game is very clear

Head coach on Brentford.

Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa spoke to the media ahead of Tuesday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Brentford.

The Whites head to Griffin Park looking to bounce back from defeat against Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Bielsa spoke about the importance of being able to bring Kalvin Phillips back into the team, the threat of Brentford and staying positive in the bad moments.

“Phillips will come back into the team for the game tomorrow night,” said Bielsa.

“He’s always been an important player and we can always count on him to make our team better.

“Brentford is a team with good attackers, a midfield built more to attack than defend and they have a compact defence.

“Of course the importance of the game is very clear to us all.

“Every team plays in the same way against us, we are used to playing these kind of games.

“Tyler Roberts will not play tomorrow, he took a strong kick on Saturday.

“It’s incredible that he continued in the match, he proved that he is engaged in the team and was very brave to continue.

“I speak to the players both individually and collectively in the bad moments.

“The players are still doing some things they used to do in our good moments.

“Before maybe we didn’t pay the consequences for our mistakes but now we are paying for them.

“The team is not playing worse than before, the team are not running less than before and the team has kept the same confidence as before.
