Premier League legend Alan Shearer feels that Marcelo Bielsa’s decision to send someone to spy Derby County’s training session was wrong as it was a private training session, and not an open one.

Bielsa revealed in his press conference on Wednesday that he has spied on all opponents’ training sessions with a presentation that left many scratching their heads.

The Argentine has made the headlines in the last week or so for, in the views of some breaching the moral code of sportsmanship behaviour, despite the fact that his side are top of the table and have played good football.

Shearer believes what Bielsa did is wrong because the situation is different from an open training session where anyone can watch the team train.

“It’s slightly different when it’s not an open training session, i.e., when there is no privacy around the training ground and everyone can watch it”, Shearer said on BBC Sport.

“Derby County’s training ground is enclosed, so that’s slightly different and slightly off.

“I don’t think it’s nothing new, but it’s definitely wrong.

"You can’t go into someone’s private training ground when you’re not invited and take the information from that.

“It’s different when it’s an open session.”

Bielsa had previously stated that he had done nothing out of order, but was reminded of the club’s integrity and honesty earlier in the week.

Leeds will hope to put all the talk of the spy-gate scandal behind them when they tale on Stoke City on Saturday.
