Leeds fans praise Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds United pulled off a remarkable comeback to triumph over Aston Villa by a 3-2 scoreline on Sunday afternoon.

The Whites were 2-0 down at half-time, and Dean Smith’s home side looked comfortable. However, Bielsa’s half-time substitution proved inspired, as Jack Clarke’s volley pulled one back for the visitors. That goal sparked the comeback which was completed deep into stoppage time by Kemar Roofe, whose late goal secured a 3-2 victory for Leeds.

Whilst huge amounts of credit have to go to the players, especially the likes of Roofe, Pontus Jansson and Pablo Hernandez, the Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa also deserves plenty of plaudits. 

When the Argentine coach arrived at Elland Road, Leeds were a club in stasis. Mere months later and they’re set to be top of the Championship table on Christmas Day.

After the triumph at Villa Park, plenty of Leeds fans took to Twitter to sing the praises of Bielsa…
