Even God is against us: Leeds fans react to Bielsa’s spiritual excuse

Leeds fans have reacted to Marcelo Bielsa’s claim that the result against Wigan on Good Friday was down to God rather than his team’s performance.

The Whites lost 2-1 against the Latics despite leading early on and the Lancashire club being down to 10 men.

Bielsa has shifted the blame away from his players and instead chose to point the finger towards a higher power.

Perhaps the Argentine was insinuating that Gavin Massey was God after his brace sunk Bielsa’s men last week.

The Leeds boss said in his press conference today: “The final result was a decision of God, not mine. I know people will treat that sarcastically.”

The manager was spot on with his prediction as fans treated the comments sarcastically with one supporter commenting “But Bielsa is God” just one week after fans flew a ‘Bielsa is God’ banner over Elland Road.

The losses over the Easter weekend has seen the Whites drop down to third place in the Championship, three points behind Sheffield United with just two games of the season to go.
