Bielsa reportedly recommends Juan Carlos Osorio as his Leeds successor

Marcelo Bielsa is clearly loving life at Leeds, but the boss has reportedly already lined up his successor.

According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, Bielsa is planning to spend some time touring around Yorkshire before the Whites take on Bolton next weekend, and he sure looks unlikely to leave the club any time soon.

The enigmatic Argentine’s side currently sit at the summit of the Championship, one point clear of Norwich City, and it’s easy see why he has been an instant hit with the Leeds fans.

Still, while those fans may not want to think about what life will be like after Bielsa, the boss has reportedly already identified the right man to take over once he leaves.

According to Diario Expreso, via Sport Witness, Bielsa has recommended that Juan Carlos Osorio takes over when his contract ends.

Osario is good friends with the Leeds boss, and is perhaps best known for his three-year stint in charge of the Mexico national team, though the 57 year-old has also managed multiple club sides like New York Red Bulls and Sao Paulo.

Osario is about as experienced as they come, but could he fill Bielsa’s shoes? Only time will tell…
