Head coach Marcelo Bielsa will be “reminded of the integrity and honesty” of Leeds United after he admitted sending a staff member to ‘spy’ on a Derby County training session.
Before Leeds’ 2-0 win over the Rams on Friday, Bielsa said he was responsible after a man was seen outside the Rams’ training ground the previous day.
Derbyshire Police removed the man and no arrests were made.
The Football Association has said it is investigating the incident.
A Leeds statement said: “Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa on Friday, the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on.
“Our owner Andrea Radrizzani has met with Derby County’s owner Mel Morris to formally apologise for Marcelo’s actions.”
