Leeds fans have been reacting to this morning’s appointment of Marcelo Bielsa, and they’re already planning for promotion.
2017-18 was a long, miserable season for Leeds fans. What started out as a possible playoff push quickly spiralled out of control after Christmas, eventually costing two managers their jobs.
Paul Heckingbottom’s tenure was particularly infuriating for fans, as the ex-Barnsley’s lack of experience unfortunately shone through.
Owner Andrea Radrizzani certainly can’t be criticised for not learning from his mistakes though, as he has opted for one of the most experienced managers around this time.
The club officially unveiled Bielsa as their new manager on Friday morning, and fans are absolutely buzzing about the news.

After suffering through plenty of torrid performances and results in recent years, fans are now finally feeling optimistic about the future.
Bielsa is best known for his trademark 3-3-3-1 formation, which allows rapid transitions from defence to attack.
The enigmatic Argentine is also known to have a short fuse, and lasted just two days as Lazio manager back in 2016 before quitting.
Either way, fireworks and storylines are guaranteed at Elland Road this season, and fans can’t wait for the Bielsa era to begin.
