Jack Harrison claims Leeds training ground
Jack Harrison shared that a goal he scored in Leeds United training drove the opposing team “so crazy”, as he told Soccer AM on Sky Sports.
The Leeds winger was referring to Marcelo Bielsa’s famous ‘murderball’ session and the way he scored a goal, despite the ball going out of play during preparation.
Many Leeds players have explained that they have to participate in the grueling session, which involves non-stop football as there are no fouls, touches or free kicks.
It is designed to test the fitness of players and increase their ability to play at such a high intensity and at all times.
This is one of the reasons why Leeds United matches are so exciting, action packed and like a FIFA game on Playstation.
This is what Harrison had to say about a particular moment in Thorp Arch that left those on the opposing team unhappy.
âThere are no fouls,â said Harrison. âThere are a lot of fouls that should be called out.
âEven today I got away with it a bit, I was a bit sneaky today. The ball came out of play by about as much (small margin).
âBut I just kept playing because I knew what the coaches were like. I did a one-two and we ended up scoring.
âThe other team was so crazy. They were like “it was out, it was out”. But they just like the game to be continuous and intense.
Harrison recently returned to Leeds’ scoresheet and he hopes to win with him in their FA Cup meeting on Sunday.
The Whites are in the capital as they take on West Ham United, another Premier League club, in the third round.
West Ham are doing very well in the Premier League and can afford to play a stronger or stronger side.
But with Leeds hovering above the relegation zone, will Bielsa play his strongest eleven possible, especially given his recent injury issues?
