Bielsa: We needed the win

Marcelo Bielsa was pleased with his Athletic Bilbao side, as they scored an early goal to defeat Osasuna 1-0.

The Argentine Coach was full of praise for his team after securing the three points, saying the win was 'very much needed'.

“The team was very intense, very dynamic, very hardworking,” he told a press conference. “80 minutes of our play was of a very good standard.

“The game could have ended 1-1 or 4-0. It was quite confusing. The victory though, was very much needed. We did not start well, and did not end well, but for the rest of the game we played well.

“We'll have to see over the next few games, if we are becoming more the side we want to be.”
