Leeds United fans on Twitter are ecstatic after it was finally confirmed that Marcelo Bielsa will be staying on at the club for another year.
Speculation had been rampant that the Argentine was ready to walk away from Elland Road after the Whites’ playoff semi-final defeat to Derby County, but a major breakthrough has clearly been made.
The 63-year-old has a reputation for leaving clubs prematurely, but that isn’t going to be the case this time as he has committed another year to the Yorkshire club, per their official Twitter account.
And fans are understandably buzzing that their illustrious manager is staying. Bielsa completely transformed Leeds last season from a mid-table team into promotion contenders with largely the same squad.
Although the Whites fell at the final hurdle, they improved massively from previous years, and they are now in a great position to finish the job next season.
Supporters certainly believe that the former Marseille manager is the man to lead them back into the top flight.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on Twitter…
YESSSSSS what we’ve all been waiting for ?
