Bielsa admits to undeserved victory

Marcelo Bielsa has confessed that his Athletic Bilbao team were lucky to beat Real Mallorca at ONO Estadi.

Aritz Aduriz scored an 11th minute winner to give Los Leones a second consecutive League win, but the Argentine tactician has conceded that his team were fortunate to win.

“To say we deserved the victory would be untruthful,” he told a Press conference. “Everything was geared towards a Mallorca win.

“I can hardly say that we should have triumphed, because that is not true.

“This was a much needed result. Hopefully it will grant us some peace.”
