Leeds fans have had their say on Marcelo Bielsa, finding it hard to downplay their love for the Argentine after a supporter received an e-mail from him.
One adoring individual sent the Leeds boss a message describing how grateful they are to have him as their manager, which in turn sparked a small response from the 64-year-old himself.
I sent a letter to Marcelo Bielsa a few days ago, saying how grateful I am to have him as #lufc manager. Today I received this response… just when you thought you couldn’t love the man any more. @Newells_en @LUFC @GrahamSmyth @PhilHay_ @apopey @Tim_Vickery pic.twitter.com/O6VzturteR

It was a gracious and classy reply from Bielsa who as a result was hailed by certain segments of the fan base on Twitter.
One fan went as far as saying that not since the days of Don Revie have they been so excited about the club whilst another said that everything he did simply oozed class.
A further individual failed to see what Leeds would be like without their current boss as one suggested that he’d changed the club forever.
Bielsa led his team to the playoffs last term but failed to attain promotion. That doesn’t seem to have downplayed him in the hearts and minds of supporters though who are seemingly excited at what they can achieve after he signed a new deal in May.
Under him this term, they are currently unbeaten and will hope to extend that record when they face Brentford on Wednesday evening.
Here’s some of the reaction.
Just superb. Brilliant time to be a leeds fan. I’m always jealous of those who grew up watching the Revie years but it really is something special to be here for what’s going on under Bielsa.

I love that man , not since the great Don Revie ( I’m old enough to have watched those great years) have I been so excited about what we’re witnessing #Lufc

I am convinced he is Don Revie reincarnated.
