The spy was quizzed by cops and his vehicle registration proved that his car was provided by Leeds.

And Bielsa openly accepted that the idea was his while admitting he has plenty of experience in spying on his opponents.

In a interview with Sky ahead of the contest, he said: “It’s true there was someone from Leeds United,

“The responsibility for this lies with me. I’m responsible.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s legal or illegal, or right or wrong. For me it’s enough that Frank Lampard and Derby County feel it was not the right thing to do and that I didn’t behave well.

“Yesterday I talked to Frank Lampard and he told me I didn’t respect the fair play rules,

“I have a different point of view but the important thing is what Frank Lampard and Derby County think.

“I didn’t ask permission from Leeds United to do it so it’s my responsibility.

“I’ve been using this kind of practice since the qualifications for the World Cup with Argentina. It is not illegal we’ve been doing it publicly, we talk about it in the press.

“For some people it’s the wrong thing to do and some people it’s not.”
