According to Sky Sports, Leeds United are in advanced talks to appoint Marcelo Bielsa as their new manager and Paul Heckingbottom’s successor.
If the 62-year-old does arrive at Elland Road he will get to work on deciding who is and isn’t good enough for a Championship promotion push next season, and who fits into the elaborate 3-3-3-1 formation he has used in the past.
Ezgjan Alioski was one of the success stories of a disappointing 2017 summer of recruitment for the Yorkshire outfit, as he became a regular in the starting XI and scored seven goals and provided a further five assists in 42 league appearances.
Leeds fans on Twitter certainly believe that the winger – who can play on either flank – could be a huge success under the Argentine coach.
We decided to ask more Whites supporters to vote on our poll to see whether they thought the 18-cap Macedonia international would thrive or flop under Bielsa, and a whopping 92% think he would be a huge hit.
It would certainly be a brave appointment by Andrea Radrizzani and Co, but it could be one that brings the best out of some of their attacking players like Alioski.
