Chelsea manager Emma Hayes has revealed she spent an hour of Mother's Day watching videos of Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa on YouTube.

The 43 year-old, who has been the Blues' boss for eight years, spent the day socially distancing with her one-year-old son Harry.

But Hayes told BBC Radio 5 Live that she still managed to carve out a little time for some football-related content.

She said: “We are taking this opportunity to develop ourselves. But I’m finding it really hard to do that with a baby around my ankles.

“I snuck an hour to watch Bielsa on YouTube, I love that guy. I watched a video of him talking about tactics and formations against Brazil and I absolutely loved it.

“I had to hide in the cupboard for a bit so my son was not cognisant of where I was.”

All elite football in England is currently suspended until at least April 30 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hayes has already led her team to League Cup glory last month and will be hoping they can secure a third Women's Super League title in five years once the league resumes.

The Blues are unbeaten all season in the league and sit one point behind table toppers Manchester City with a game in hand.
