Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United have started the season like a house on fire as they sit pretty at the top of the EFL Championship table with 14 points from their first 6 games. Bielsa has gotten Leeds playing high-pressing, attacking football his teams are known for and has already become a fan favourite among the Elland Road faithful.

It is a well-known fact that the Argentine demands a lot of effort and work-rate from his players every game. It appears it’s not just the players from whom Bielsa demands 110% effort, but also the kits.

That is certainly the joke doing the rounds on social media after Leeds’ official store made a hilarious mistake when listing the features of the team’s 18/19 kit that was on sale.

According to the website, the shirt material is made of ‘97% Polyester and 13% Elastane’, a total which adds up to 110%. A Leeds fans who spotted the error, wasted no time in pointing out the gaffe on social media:
