The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LEEDS United winger Jack Har­ri­son says Pep Guardi­ola’s ad­mi­ra­tion for Marcelo Bielsa was a ma­jor fac­tor in him sign­ing on loan from Manch­ester City in the sum­mer.

The 21-year old signed for the Premier League cham­pi­ons from af­fil­i­ate club New York City FC last sum­mer, and has put in a string of im­pres­sive dis­plays this sea­son.

The winger ad­mit­ted he spoke to Guardi­ola be­fore his move to El­land Road. “Pep ad­mires the way Marcelo’s teams play and the phi­los­o­phy is quite sim­i­lar to Manch­ester City”, said Har­ri­son

“The style we want to play suits me.”
