Marcelo Bielsa Admits He Sent Leeds 'Spy' To Derby Training

About that 'spy' at Derby County.

Well, Marcelo Bielsa has just ADMITTED full responsibility to sending a spy to their Championship rival's training ground.

"It doesn't matter if it's legal or illegal or right or wrong. For me it's enough that Frank Lampard and Derby felt it was not the right thing to do," the Argentinean manager said in his pre-match interview.

What's more, he's been 'using this practice' for some time now.

"Without trying to find any form of justification, I have been using this practice since the [2002] World Cup qualifications with Argentina.

"I'm the only one responsible for it, because I didn't ask for the permission of Leeds to do it," he added.
