Bielsa demands Lille improvement

Le Championnat

Marcelo Bielsa has urged his Lille players to show a “different face” when they look to get their season on track against Troyes.

Les Dogues have struggled to date, winning just one of their seven games to leave them stranded in the relegation zone.

Bielsa’s summer arrival in French Flanders was tipped to help transform a club treading water in recent years due to their policy of selling their best players.

The unpredictable Argentine admits he has been left frustrated by his side’s efforts and has urged them to produce something different on Saturday when Troyes visit the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

“We need to show a different face and show something else to be consistent during the season,” said Bielsa. “We can’t deny that a significant series of good displays will reduce the anxiety around the team.”
