Leeds United employee 'seen acting suspiciously' outside Derby County's training ground

Derby manager Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard's Derby have taken 12 points from their past seven Championship matches

Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno react to Marcelo Bielsa admitting to spying on Derby County and that he's done it since he was with Argentina.

Bielsa spoke to Lampard over the phone to accept full responsibility for the incident but the former England midfielder was still unhappy with the pre-match distraction after goals from Kemar Roofe and Jack Harrison secured Leeds a welcome win. I have a different point of view on it but the important thing is what Frank and Derby think.I am responsible for it because I didn't ask for permission to do it. "This is not unlawful, we've done it publicly, we talk about it in the press, for some people it's the wrong thing to do - for others it's not".

If preparation and tactics are not part of the game and quite sacred that you can work on them in your own training ground, then I think they must be lucky managers.

In response to Bielsa's admission, Lampard said he did not buy the excuse that it is accepted elsewhere.

"So I think you look at all three of those games and you think, we can go away from home and play well and almost get a result against Chelsea and obviously win the other two games".

"Without trying to find a justification".

Despite the unsporting act, Bielsa is unlikely to face punishment from the club and lose his job.

Leeds United extended their lead at the top of the Championship with a 2-0 victory over Derby County at Elland Road on Friday night.

"Leeds can beat you 4-1 because they are a fantastic team, but they had someone in the bushes that day".

In a statement released to Omnisport, an FA spokesperson said: "We are aware of the incident at Derby County's training ground and we will be investigating the matter".

"We lost to the better team from minute one to minute 90 whatever", said Lampard, who joked the Football Association should reverse the three points. If we're going to talk about "culturally I did it somewhere else and it was fine" that doesn't work for me because I don't believe it is fine on that level.

Earlier a Derbyshire Police statement had confirmed a man was removed from a position near the club's training ground.

"We were training on team tactics, shape, personnel, and the fact that Harry Wilson wasn't training".

Derby are now eight points behind Leeds ahead of Friday night's match, and lost the corresponding fixture at the start of the season 4-1 at Pride Park.
