From spygate to gifting a goal to Aston Villa, Marcelo Bielsa has never been too far away from controversy at Leeds, but fans are supporting him after he apologised for his actions and that of his coaching staff on Tuesday.
The Argentine admitted he was in the wrong after more than two of his coaches entered the Leeds technical area against West Brom, which prompted the referee to book them accordingly.

Bielsa said he was unaware of the rule but apologised for making the mistake, leading to an outpour of praise from many Leeds fans, with some likening him to a saint.
His honesty and integrity has also been commented upon, and it seems supporters are delighted to have him in the dugout for his personality as much as his managerial ability.
Leeds travel to Millwall on Saturday and will look to maintain their place at the top of the table, and a win is likely to please these Leeds fans even more.
Said this so many times about Bielsa, he’s inspirational to the entire footballing community and an amazing example if you’re looking for a little aspiration.

The mans humility and integrity astound me – if only everyone was so brutally honest and self effacing. #lufc

What a guy. He’ll probably ring Bilic in 10 years and apologise again

Ah, love him! How many of us can manage to speak a second language? It’s hard. Many people can’t even communicate properly in their first language, so fair play to him. He can have all the time he needs to learn. Please stay and learn at Leeds Marcelo!
