Leeds fans just can’t get enough of Bielsa

Leeds fans are already in love with Marcelo Bielsa, after the Argentine used his first comments as the new boss to praise the club’s history.

You probably won’t find a prouder set of fans anywhere in England than at Elland Road, and the Leeds faithful have finally got a manager to match their ambitions.

Fans have been excited ever since the links to Bielsa first cropped up, and the club officially unveiled the veteran manager on Friday morning.

As if his reputation wasn’t enough to get fans on side, the 62 year-old has endeared himself to fans even further, using his first comments as Leeds boss to praise the club and its storied past.

“When a club with Leeds United’s history made me an offer, it was impossible to turn down,” Bielsa said.

The former Chile and Argentina boss is sure to get Leeds playing some exciting football this season, and the bookmarkers have already slashed odds on promotion.


Bielsa has managed some of Europe’s elite, but his passion to represent Leeds will be appreciated by fans just as much as his tactical expertise.
