Leeds sorry for spying scandal

Marcelo Bielsa has been reminded of his responsibilities by Leeds United, and the club's owner Andrea Radrizzani has apologised to Derby County counterpart Mel Morris over the spying scandal.

Derby claimed on Friday that a man caught acting "suspiciously" near their training ground a day previously was a Leeds employee, an incident that will be investigated by the Football Association.

Police confirmed a man was found and questioned at the perimeter fence of the complex, before being sent on his way with no arrest made.

Leeds boss Bielsa accepted in a pre-match interview before Friday's 2-0 win over the Rams that he was personally responsible for sending a club employee but showed little remorse in a remarkable defence of his actions.

The Championship leaders have now stated their intention to speak with Bielsa, who conceded he personally sent the man in question without notifying the club, regarding his remarks.

A club statement read: "Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa yesterday the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on."
