Leeds fans baffled after Marcelo Bielsa is tipped to be replaced on BBC 5 Live

Championship Picks

Leeds have started the season in unbeaten fashion, beating Bristol City before drawing with Nottingham Forest last weekend.

However, that hasn’t stopped a major statement being made about manager Marcelo Bielsa on the radio.

A phone-in involved a so-called supporter claiming he should be replaced by none other than Jose Mourinho, as comments made on Radio 5 Live appeared to cause controversy.

The exchange between a fan, Robbie Savage and Emma Jones saw a heated debate take place on Twitter as a host of fans took to the social media platform to discuss the claim.

One fan said he wouldn’t even want Mourinho in Yorkshire, let alone at Elland Road whilst another said they could think of nothing worse than having the Portuguese at Leeds.

A further individual went as far as saying they’d rather stay down with Bielsa than get promoted and have the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss at the helm.

Mourinho hasn’t been involved in football management since being sacked by United but any chance of arriving at Leeds seems incredibly slim.

To date, Bielsa currently has a win percentage of 50.9% whilst in charge of the Whites.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
