Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa was unable to pronounce ‘Ipswich’ during a press conference looking ahead to Sunday’s match at Portman Road.
As he turns to his translator Salim Lamrani for help with the word, Bielsa’s attempted pronunciations include what sounds like “Ispich” and “Ipschwitz”.

Eventually he declares himself defeated, eliciting laughter from the press gallery.
Bielsa was yesterday involved in a touchline dispute with Aston Villa coach John Terry as the two sides played out a controversial and fiery encounter.
The 1-1 draw at Elland Road ensured that automatic promotion is mathematically out of reach for Leeds, who must now look to the playoffs.
