Marcelo Bielsa: We had a lot of opportunities

Head coach shares reaction to Newcastle performance.

Marcelo Bielsa gave his views to the media after the Whites were held to a 1-1 draw away at Newcastle United.

Despite a large number of chances created throughout the game, Leeds had to settle for a point at St James’ Park. 

“It was a game that according to what happened, we should have won,” Bielsa summarised.  

“We had a lot of opportunities to score and there were also a lot of options where they didn’t end up in danger, but it would have been easy to convert to danger.

“It is true that the opponent also had chances. Less than us and within a transmit that was different.

“We dominated the game and they counter attacked. But, I insist, given the chances we had we should have won the game.

“I also would have hoped we would have reduced the amount of chances that the opponent created.  

“That would have established a bigger margin between the two teams.”
