Sky Sports pundit: I spent an hour of Mother's Day watching Leeds man on YouTube
Chelsea Women’s manager Emma Hayes has revealed that she spent an hour of her Mother’s Day watching videos about Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa on YouTube.
Mothers across the nation were told to spend their day inside on Sunday and practice social distancing due to coronavirus pandemic.
It left a lot of people without much to do but Sky Sports pundit Hayes ensured she would use her day to broaden her horizons by learning more about Bielsa.
“We are taking this opportunity to develop ourselves,” Hayes told BBC Radio 5 live, as quoted on BBC Sport’s website. “But I’m finding it really hard to do that with a baby around my ankles.
“I snuck an hour to watch Bielsa on YouTube, I love that guy. I watched a video of him talking about tactics and formations against Brazil and I absolutely loved it.
“I had to hide in the cupboard for a bit so my son was not cognisant of where I was.”

Bielsa is someone who every manager in football should study.
The Argentine just has such a different outlook on the game and such a different way of doing things than most other managers in the game.
Leeds’ players were bound to have had a shock after their first training session with the Argentine, who has barely made any personnel changes in his time at Elland Road but has the Whites sitting top of the Championship.
Hayes is a highly-regarded manager in the women’s game and it says a lot about Bielsa that she spent an hour on Mother’s Day to learn about him and his ways.
In other Leeds United news, Pontus Jansson sent a Twitter message to this Whites star on Sunday.
