Marcelo Biesla takes responsibility for Leeds United spy at Derby County training

"I am the only one responsible for this".

"No arrests were made and the man was sent on his way".

I didn't ask for the permission of the club of Leeds United to do that.

Bielsa confirmed in an interview before kick off at Elland Road this evening that the person at Derby's training ground was sent there by himself.

Derbyshire Police issued a statement denying the reports, but did confirm that "a man was found at the perimeter fence of Moor Farm and was spoken to". "The responsibility of this is me, I am responsible, there is some precision that I need to give".

"It doesn't matter if it's legal or illegal or right or wrong".

Derby manager Frank Lampard, also speaking ahead of the kick-off, said that the incident shouldn't be excused on cultural grounds.

"Without trying to find a justification, I have been using this kind of practice since the qualifiers for the World Cup with Argentina. It is, of course, up to Derby County as to how they progress this matter but as of yet we have received no complaint or contact from the Club".

Packers' LaFleur excited to work with Rodgers
The latter will be important in Green Bay, because there will be a dedication to the running game to give the offense balance. LaFleur, 39, accepted the Packers' offer to become the 15th head coach in franchise history the team announced Tuesday night.

'We had somebody [spy on us] the first game we played against them, which we lost 4-1. The man was asked to leave but it wasn't followed up like it has been this time.

"On a sporting level, it's bad, in my opinion", Lampard said.

Derby, who now occupy the final playoff position in the league table, have amassed 43 points from 26 games in the Championship. It has disrupted our build-up for this game.

"So I think you look at all three of those games and you think, we can go away from home and play well and almost get a result against Chelsea and obviously win the other two games".

"The training stopped because the police came on the training ground, then it went away".

'What I will say is, we were training the day before the game on team tactics, team shape, personnel, how we're going to press, how we're going to work off the ball.

'If somebody wants to say that isn't relevant and won't affect the game and tactics aren't relevant and how you want to prepare, then that means Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Jurgen Klopp and all the great managers then they are just lucky because if preparation and tactics are not part of the game and aren't sacred that you can work on your own training ground then they are lucky managers because they must be'.
