Kalvin Phillips has revealed that Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa is always on his case in training and says the Argentine tactician does not go ten minutes without shouting his name.

Phillips, who came up through the academy at Elland Road, has been an integral member of the squad under the guidance of Bielsa so far this term.




The 23-year-old has played a part in every single game in the Championship campaign, helping the Whites become the front-runners in the race for promotion.

Despite earning raving reviews about his training methods since his arrival in the summer, Phillips revealed that Bielsa is strict and keeps the players grounded during training at all times.
 


Bielsa has shifted Phillips' role in the side and even deployed him in central defence in recent weeks – and the youngster says that the Argentine is always on his case, shouting his name and those of others repeatedly.

“If you’re doing something wrong he’ll tell you”, Phillips told BBC Radio Leeds.

“Every day in training there doesn’t go by ten minutes without hearing my name being shouted and other people but, I get it most.

“But it’s all learning about how he wants you to play and be.”

Leeds are currently first in the Championship table and will next face Aston Villa away from home on Sunday.
