Leeds United fans have been bemoaning the news that manager Marcelo Bielsa has swooped up the manager of the month award.
The feeling among the fans is that the award is a curse and that it could start ‘the kiss of death’ for the Yorkshire side, according to one fan.
The kiss of death now 4 saturday 🤬😱

Supporters could be onto something if you take last season’s occurrences into account.
However, in September, Leeds found themselves floundering as they won just one of their three league games.
Is Marcelo Bielsa the best coach in the Championship
Leeds face a challenging run of fixtures as they face promotion rivals Fulham, Preston North End and West Bromwich Albion in three of their next five games.
It seems fans weren’t too pleased with the experienced coach winning the award as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO not the curse
