26th April 2018

Leeds United manager Paul Heckingbottom has been speaking to the press ahead of his sides trip to Norwich City.

The Whites travel to Carrow Road with nothing left to play for in terms of this season, but this weekends opponents are also in the same position, and on the same points in the league.

Just one place seperates the two teams in the Championship table.

However the majority of the press conference was dominated by other news coming out of Elland Road this week.

The club announced  on Wednesday that they weill be travelling to Myanmar, otherwise known as Burma, for a post-season tour. This was met with widespread criticism from fans, journalists, mainly down to the countries Rohingyan crisis.

Although the press were not allowed to ask questions on the trip from a political point of view – Paul did speak about the trip from a football perspective and did say he had no concerns about the trip in terms of safety himself.

Also on the agenda was the new contract for Spaniard Pablo Hernandez, who signed a two-year contract extension at the club despite rumours he may look at returning to his home country.
