Gabby Agbonlahor has heaped praise on Marcelo Bielsa for adapting his style at Leeds United against Manchester United.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England and Aston Villa striker insisted the Whites have learned from their mistakes earlier this season which is a “good sign” for the next campaign.
Leeds played out a drab 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Elland Road on Sunday with the sides registering seven attempts on target between them.
The result lifted the Yorkshire giants to ninth in the Premier League just seven points off the top-six with five games left to play.
Asked for his assessment of Leeds’ display, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “They’ve had to learn in certain games, you can’t be so gung ho.
“They got beat 6-2 by Man United at Old Trafford.
“They know now that against certain teams, you can’t fly forward and leave Rashford one-v-one or Greenwood one-v-one. You can’t do it, it’s impossible.
“It looks like Leeds are learning more and more which is a good sign for Leeds. If they can, against the big clubs, be more pragmatic and more organised they’re going to get better results and next season.
“So against the teams they’re better than they can gung ho and smash these teams.
“Definitely good management from Bielsa, people said he wouldn’t change his style but he has. He went more organised in defence.”
Speaking to the BBC after the game, Bielsa said: “In the game we defended well. We couldn’t attack how we wanted to.
“Even if we didn’t dominate, we avoided the game becoming unbalanced. There are signs of evolution.”
