Marcelo Bielsa in awe of Ben White after Luton assist

Marcelo Bielsa singled out Ben White for praise after Leeds claimed a stoppage time win away at Luton.

White laid on a stunning assist for Patrick Bamford’s first goal and impressed generally with his overall performance.

And Bielsa admitted he was in awe of the centre-back after he went the length of the pitch to set up his team mate.

“You can say nothing about that because it’s easy to value what White did. It’s obvious,” Bielsa told Leeds Live.

“It was a great, brilliant resolution that is a way to describe how football is going. The attackers defend and the defenders are also involved in the building of the attack.

“It’s not normal that one centre-back give these kind of passes Ben White did.”

The Elland Road outfit are now second in the Championship and face Reading on Tuesday.
