Loads of Leeds United fans have showered manager Marcelo Bielsa following the actions he took at the full-time whistle on Saturday.
The Whites managed to get over the line against Reading with a 1-0 win at Elland Road, in what was a hard-fought victory for the hosts. Pablo Hernandez scored 12 minutes into the second half and strengthened their position inside the top two places in the Championship. As the final whistle blew, fans spotted Bielsa do something that they simply loved.
The Argentinian boss made his way onto the pitch to shake the hand of Kiko Casilla after he made a series of saves which proved to be crucial in the Yorkshire outfit securing all three points. He did all of this with an injured hand, which he sustained earlier in the game. As a result, supporters were delighted with his actions and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan called him a “class act”, while another simply stated “my manager”.
Does Jean-Kevin Augustin deserve more game time at Leeds?

Bielsa is so special, we are so lucky to have him, these are very special times, some of the best in 15,16 years. He brings intelligence, honour, style and most importantly he brings hope.

That’s a huge thing for Kiko. Bielsa never goes on the pitch! Amazing touch by Marcelo
