Sol Bamba shares if Bielsa should make changes with fans claiming Leeds 'falling apart'
Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba believes that Leeds United shouldn’t change anything despite claims that they are ‘falling apart’ once again.
The Whites returned to form in emphatic fashion against Bristol City on Saturday, putting in a commanding display despite the score only being 1-0.
Fans around the country had been revelling at Leeds’ recent demise in form, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side only winning three of their last 12 games in the Championship.
Bamba claimed that those chants should be ignored though and that Leeds don’t need to change anything and instead stick with what has brought them success over the past two years.
“They just have to do what they have been doing all season,” he replied when asked what his former side have to do to seal promotion on Sky Sports (19/02, 11:50 am).
“I don’t think they need to change anything. But make sure the losses don’t affect them. Everyone’s laughing and saying ‘they are falling apart’.”

Most fans of other clubs in England take pleasure at Leeds looking like they’re about to fail, but hopefully, Saturday’s display can put an end to the recent poor run before that.
Luke Ayling’s goal against his former side meant that Leeds beat Bristol City 1-0, but everyone knows that scoreline flattered the Robins.
Leeds had 68.4% possession and had 20 shots compared to the away side’s three at Elland Road according to WhoScored – which highlights the massive gulf in class.
The Whites also completed nearly triple the number of accurate passes in the game, 432 to 15. If they can dominate the likes of Reading in the upcoming clash, three points will certainly follow.
It is pivotal that Leeds continue to pick up points with 13 games to go in the Championship. The last two months saw the Whites fall apart last season, and Bamba is right – they must stick to what has made them so successful up to this point, starting on Saturday.
