Marcelo Bielsa has revealed that he paid Leeds United's £200,000 fine for the 'Spygate' saga out of his own pocket - and that he will pay for any fine the club receive following the brawl against Aston Villa last weekend.
Leeds were hit with a huge fine in February after Bielsa admitted to sending spies to watch their opponents before matches.
The practice was rumbled when Derby County discovered a member of Leeds' staff outside their training ground in January, which led to calls for the Championship promotion hopefuls to be deducted points for what was a breach of English Football League rules that demand opposing teams are treated with 'good faith'.
