Marcelo Bielsa Should 'Offer To Resign' After Leeds' Shock 3-0 Defeat To Crawley Town
Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has been told he should 'offer to resign' following the club's shock 3-0 defeat to Crawley Town.
It was a much changed Leeds side from their last Premier League outing and talkSPORT's Adrian Durham was left perplexed by the decision.
He begun: "We need to talk about Crawley 3-0 Leeds, which I thought was an absolute disgrace from a Leeds point of view.
"But I thought it was an incredible series of errors from Bielsa. And I know the Leeds fans love him. But this is one of those where, and I always say, if you take a beating a manager should offer to resign.
"Bielsa should offer to resign. Because he's taken a Premier League side to the side that's sixth in League Two and they've been beaten 3-0. It could have been more. Leeds were an absolute disgrace.
"They had two efforts on target so even if they had stuck them in they would still be out of the FA Cup. Why he played [Kiko] Casilla, I don't know.

"I think that's insulting Crawley. He's played two games since last February.
"They brought on an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old [Jack Jenkins & Oliver Casey] at half-time for two senior centre-backs [Liam Cooper & Pascal Struijk]. What is he even thinking about there?
"And no [Patrick] Bamford up top. So how are they meant to score any goals?

"I don't expect his offer to resign to be accepted for one minute. But for me that will be the decent thing to do.
"You bring Mark Wright on. That is Crawley taking the mickey out of Leeds. But they have every right to, they've earned the right to because they've battered them 3-0. They can bring on whoever they want! That is laughing at Leeds.
"To go out to the team 6th in League Two in the manner they did is totally unacceptable. There should be an apology.
"For all the good work he's done Bielsa, as much as he's idolised, I don't think those Leeds fans will be happy."
Leeds are currently 12th in the Premier League table and lost their last league outing 3-0 to Tottenham Hotspur. They return to action on Saturday afternoon against Brighton & Hove Albion.
