Leeds United Argentinean manager Marcelo Bielsa called the media for an emergency press conference where has admitted spying on every club this season.

After a member of Marcelo Bielsa’s staff was spotted at the Derby County training session before the Leeds United match, all hell broke loose.

The Argentinean manager was accused of spying and breaking Fair Play rules, while Leeds apologized to Derby.

And now, after the English Football Leagues (EFL) said they were going to look into the controversy, Bielsa helped them out.

He called an emergency press conference today, where he showed a presentation of all the team he has spied this season.

All of Leed’s rivals.

“I don’t want to compare my behavior with the previous behavior that is similar,” Bielsa was quoted by The Daily Mail.

“I heard there are others which also affected fair play but absolutely, I don’t want to defend myself by attacking others. What I’ve done is not illegal. It’s not specified (in the rules) and it’s not restrained.”

“We can discuss it, it’s not seen as a good thing but it’s not a violation of the law. I know that not everything that is legal is right to do,” he explained.

“If you observe something without the authorization of the people being observed we call it spying and we say it is spying.”

“I can’t say it’s the right thing to do but I’m going to explain that I didn’t have bad intentions or get an advantage,” he said as he showed the presentation to the media.
