Thanks Jackos, that all makes sense
As to whether he likes working under Bielsa, he mentioned a bit when I interviewed him but I couldn't fit it in anywhere. He said that because he's always played every game at "110% or 120%" intensity, he finds playing matches exhausting — he leaves it all on the pitch. So training at 100% every day as well is hard for him to cope with. It wasn't a complaint, he was just saying, that's his situation. It sounded a bit like the old David Batty philosophy — not motivated in training, but more committed than anyone at 3pm.
(The context was about his body language at the end of last season, and how he finds it hard to maintain the in-game intensity when there's nothing at stake; he feels, and his brother always tell him, that he plays better when it's a big game with lots of work to do. Said the Reading game, after we'd gone 3-0 up, was hard to play in. The tone was kind of accepting, he's 28/29, this is the way he is.)
I think you're bound to get that in a squad of 25 — you'll always have some who do/don't like the coach, and I guess that's taken to extremes when you're worked as hard as Bielsa works you. I think it might be a factor in the second season/burnout stories people like to tell. Bielsa's methods have increased the transfer and salary value of pretty much every player at Leeds. This summer those players will be getting a lot of offers like, 'We'll pay you loads more money, and you won't have to do half as much work.' That's got to be tempting, although it's a the buying club and moving player's risk whether they can be as good without the work. For someone like Jansson, I suppose he's old enough to say he's proved himself with or without Bielsa.
