Leeds United transfer news: Whites told to swoop for title-winning midfielder, West Ham eye Leeds-linked ace
Leeds United are gearing up for arguably their most eagerly-anticipated game of the season this weekend, when they take on arch-rivals Manchester United at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon.
The last time the two sides met, back in December, the Red Devils romped to a 6-2 win at Old Trafford, and Marcelo Bielsa's side will be out for revenge, as they also look to secure a top-half finish in what has been a stellar return to the Premier League this season.
Speaking after their 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Monday, before the so-called European Super League folded last night, the Leeds boss gave his view on the highly-controversial competition proposals, and contended: “The president of the club (Andrea Radrizzani) puts his thought forward to limit the power of these big clubs. This is something to celebrate.
“Of course there are different teams that are more important than others but they should be conscious that we need each other. Because football has always a view that's more commercial now, it's natural that in the world of businesses and looking only at the economic aspect the ones that produce the most demand the majority of it.
“That's common in the world of business, but football is not only a business. But before or after it was going to happen because football belongs to everybody even if there are owners, the real owners of football are the ones who love the badge. Without them football would disappear.
“Any decision that attacks all these people, all the fans of football, and that privileges only one sector is staking the future.”
