Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post ahead of Leeds United’s game against Luton Town, Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa has said that he is happy to see former loan man Izzy Brown enjoying life at Kenilworth Road after a difficult loan spell at Elland Road.

During his loan spell with Leeds United, playmaker Izzy Brown was unable to make an impact under Marcelo Bielsa. The Chelsea youngster only played twice for the Whites with injury problems playing a big role in his difficult time with the club.

Now, Brown has settled into life at Luton Town and has hit an impressive run of form. The 22-year-old has provided six assists in all competitions so far, and Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is happy to see him performing well, voicing some regret that they couldn’t get the best out of him at Leeds. He said:

“I am very happy for him because he is a player who was with us and had a very good behaviour here. He is showing a level he didn’t show with us. I consider this as a mistake. I am sure Luton could give him things that I couldn’t.

“At Luton, he is able to compete to play matches and we could not give him that. After, you can see this in a different way. If we could have achieved and had him for one more year, maybe we could have got another version of him.

“He arrived healthy (at Luton) and recovered and when he did six months work, he couldn’t work properly, but I do not want you to take credit from the people who are with him now because other staff achieved to make the best of him.”
