Marcelo Bielsa gives jaw-dropping press conference as pressure mounts on Lille

Lille manager Marcelo Bielsa gave a very frank press conference this afternoon ahead of the club’s next Ligue 1 fixture this weekend, which included some awkward, difficult moments between the manager and journalists.

Bielsa, whose side currently sit 17th in Ligue 1 after six games played, have a crucial fixture on Friday against AS Monaco.

The Argentine gave some frank insight into the club’s current situation:

“No manager is going to think before a game that he will lose. That possibility exists, but it goes against the psychological preparation before game… there is absolutely no tension… Nobody decides to play badly. But you can decide to put in lots of effort or little effort…”
