Kalvin Phillips may be “desperate” to quit Leeds United after being forced to play as a centre-back by Marcelo Bielsa, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England forward claimed Bielsa is on a “power trip” after substituting Phillips at half-time during Leeds’ 0-0 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.
The England international was back in a more familiar midfield role as the Whites beat Crystal Palace 1-0 yesterday (30 November).
🗣 "There's been a lot of talk about me and the manager falling out… I respect him so much, I'd never fall out with him!"
