Derby V Leeds United Rocked By Remarkable Training Ground Spy Row

Derby County were forced to stop a crucial training session ahead of their clash with Leeds United due to a man spying on their preparations. "It doesn't matter if this is legal or illegal, right or wrong. for me it's enough that Frank Lampard and Derby County were unhappy, to show that I didn't behave well".

"Yesterday I talked to Frank Lampard and he said I didn't respect the rules of fair play".

"It has since been confirmed to Derby County that the individual concerned is an employee of the footballing staff at Leeds United Football Club".

"There is some precisions that I need to give".

Asked about the "spy" before facing Derby, Bielsa told Sky Sports: "It's true it was someone from Leeds United".

Manager Frank Lampard stopped training until the incident had been resolved.

The two managers face off at Elland Road on Friday night and Bielsa admitted before the match that he spied on Derby's final training session before the game - a practice he has done for the best part of 20 years.

Turkey considers America's Kurdish allies of the YPG militia - who were vital in the ground war against ISIS - a terrorist group. Both had declared that the U.S. would not leave unless ISIS was entirely defeated and Turkey agreed not to attack Syrian Kurds.

"I am the only one responsible for it, because I didn't ask for the permission of Leeds to do it". I have a different point of view on it, but the important thing is what Frank Lampard and Derby think.

"The club is now in discussion with Leeds United club officials in relation to this incident".

"If we're going to start talking about "culturally I did it somewhere else and it was fine", then that doesn't work for me", he said. "There is nothing wrong to try to find information and know a bit more about what the opponents are doing". It's disrupted our build-up to the game. "People are going to say I'm trying to make an excuse - but I'm going to speak like this after the game win, lose or draw".

In a statement released to Omnisport, an FA spokesperson said: "We are aware of the incident at Derby County's training ground and we will be investigating the matter".

'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.

"He's admitted it, so I don't think there'll be any further action but we had a guy in the bushes before we played Leeds earlier this season and we lost 4-1".
