Leeds United’s season is being recorded by a film crew and could be made into a documentary, according to the Daily Mail.
Leeds’ season has not been short of drama so far, with the club currently two points off the top of the Championship table with a game in hand and embroiled in a spying scandal.
Whilst ‘Spygate’ looks to be all but over after Marcelo Bielsa admitted spying on his opponents and the club being handed a £200,000 fine by the EFL, their season could yet take another strange turn.
The City Talking, a Leeds-based film company, have had behind-the-scenes access throughout the season, made possible by owner Andrea Radrizzani. There is potential for Leeds to get a documentary deal, especially after some of the drama this season.
If a deal is agreed, Leeds would follow in the footsteps of other clubs like Manchester City and Sunderland. Both had documentaries made of their seasons, winning the Premier League and being relegated from the Championship retrospectively that were shown on streaming services Amazon and Netflix.
However, it is understood that Marcelo Bielsa has not yet spoken to the film crew, and that could be an issue if a deal were ever to be agreed. After coming in at the start of the season and looking likely to take Leeds back up to the Premier League, Bielsa is obviously a key figure of the season and would have to be in the documentary. Without him, it might lose its appeal.
Documentary aside, Leeds will be wanting to focus on what goes on on the pitch. Their next test is against 23rd-placed Bolton Wanderers at home this Saturday (23rd February).
