Former Liverpool and Aston Villa player Stan Collymore has warned Leeds United not to ‘make the same mistake’ he thinks Aston Villa have done once their promotion to the Premier League is confirmed. After Leeds’ last-minute win at Swansea City on Sunday, they are six points ahead of Brentford in third place and are on the brink of returning to the top flight. And Collymore has warned Leeds to avoid repeating the mistakes that his former team made.
Stan Collymore said “What I hope is that they don’t make the same mistake Aston Villa made this season, spending £100million-plus on potential, as they already have the nucleus of an exceptional young team, They are good enough to have a successful season with the right couple of additions and by that I mean a mid-table finish. What will also be interesting is how Bielsa copes with the Premier League and it may well be his work ethic works better over 38 games than 46.”
