Leeds fans would love to see Ezgjan Alioski under Marcelo Bielsa

Leeds United are reportedly hoping to appoint Marcelo Bielsa as Paul Heckingbottom’s successor after the 40-year-old was sacked on Friday, and Whites fans are already excited about the prospect of Ezgjan Alioski playing under the Argentine boss.

The Yorkshire outfit are on the search for a new manager as they look for a successful Championship campaign next time out, and they could go for the 62-year-old who is known for playing a 3-3-1-3 formation that allows for a high press.

While a number of Victor Orta’s 2017 summer signings disappointed, Alioski was one of the success stories as he ended the 2017/18 campaign with seven goals and a further six assists in 45 appearances in all competitions, and his energy and work-rate would mean he could be a perfect fit for Bielsa’s demands.

Leeds supporters, who believe a big development on Saturday night means they have almost sealed a deal for their first summer signing, have been quick to have their say about the potential link-up between the duo.

While one said “he fits the tactics of Bielsa so well”, another said “I actually think a Bielsa-coached Alioski will be one of the most threatening wingers in the league”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
