Jermaine Jenas calls for Leeds points deduction after Bielsa admits 'spy' claim

Jermaine Jenas calls for Leeds points deduction after Bielsa admits 'spy' claim

Marcelo Bielsa confirmed in an interview before kick off at Elland Road that at the person at Derby's training ground was sent there by Leeds.

Derbyshire Police issued a statement denying those reports, but did confirm that "a man was found at the perimeter fence of Moor Farm and was spoken to".

Derby claim the man is an employee of their Championship promotion rivals, who play each other on Friday evening.

'If somebody wants to say that's not relevant and that won't affect the game, then I think that if tactics aren't relevant and how you prepare than that means Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Jurgen Klopp, all the great managers, then they are just lucky.

The tweet hinted at potential pre-match espionage, with the hashtag "SpyingIsCheating" included at the end.

Police were called to Derby's training ground following reports of a man acting suspiciously.

However, Derby subsequently released statement insisting that their privacy was breached by a member of Leeds manager Bielsa's staff.




The club says they are in discussions with Leeds over the incident.

Derby, who now occupy the final playoff position in the league table, have amassed 43 points from 26 games in the Championship.

'Because if preparation and tactics are not part of the game, and not so sacred that you can work in your own training ground, then I think they're lucky managers because they must be'.

Despite that they remain two points clear of second-placed Norwich City in the league table as they aim to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2003. But that has been the case in seasons past, with the end of the campaign Derby's weakness.

"For me it's enough that Frank Lampard and Derby County felt that it was not the right thing to do".

Derby also reached the fourth round of the Carabao Cup beating Manchester United at Old Trafford before going out to Lampard's old club Chelsea, while also drawing with Southampton in the third round of the FA Cup.
