Marcelo Bielsa is a head coach who clearly wears his heart on his sleeve as these photos will testify.

He ran a gambit of emotions on the Bootham Crescent touchline as his Leeds United team drew against York City last night in their second pre-season friendly.

Bielsa has a reputation, and a will, for tapping into the academies of the clubs he works at and there is ample talent in United’s in the form of players like Jamie Shackleton and Ryan Edmondson but Under-23s are more than making up the numbers in pre-season.

Alongside them last night, Lewis Baker made his first appearance since arriving from Stamford Bridge and the inclusion of Mateusz Klich and Yosuke Ideguchi indicated that they, for now, have survived the ongoing cull of surplus footballers at Thorp Arch.

Phil Hay’s verdict: York City 1 Leeds United 1
