thinks that the fact that

Patrick Bamford


Luke Ayling

are among the candidates for England national team shows that the club has been successful in the project that they have started.

“It’s a recognition, first of all, for the players, and secondly it’s recognition for the project of the club, the structure of the squad to compete in the Premier League.

“It’s a project that’s been developed by the president of the club, the sporting director and the technical staff, the president of the club, because he is the visible head of the club because he’s the one that picks the sporting director and the technical staff.

“After, the sporting director chooses and the players compete, and to be able to compete in the Premier League is what opens up the possibilities, and they do it within a team.

“It’s an achievement that makes the player proud and it shows that the proposition that their club made or that they hoped for was the correct one.”

Bamford has been in excellent form this season, scoring 13 goals for Leeds United, and has been one of the possible options for the England lineup.

“Bamford contributes goals, he makes runs and marks, he runs in behind, he has presence in the box, he has combativeness to recover the ball and he has continuity in his participation throughout the game.”

Bielsa added on Bamford


Ayling is the other player, who may be on the national team, and Bielsa says that he is an important player for the team, although he insists that he doesn’t want to put pressure on Southgate about his decisions for the national team.

“He’s one of the players that has shone the most in our team. He’s a player that can play out wide or in the center in a back four or a back three with a capacity to attack and a good aerial game, and with good management of the ball in terms of combination and first pass.”
