According to a piece by The Blizzard, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa had some ‘unusual‘ habits throughout his childhood – such as getting dressed the night before school and sleeping in his uniform because he didn’t like doing it in the morning.
Bielsa, who took charge of Leeds back in the summer of 2018, has arguably since gone on to become a popular figure among Whites fans for many different reasons – the main one being that the Argentine could be on the brink of guiding the Elland Road side back to the top flight after a more-than 15-year absence.
Last season, Bielsa’s debut campaign, United narrowly missed out on promotion – losing a Championship play-off semi-final tie to Derby over two legs. Now, with Leeds currently occupying top spot in the division, there is a great chance of automatic promotion (pending what happens to the EFL) and avoiding that painful heartbreak. Due to the revelation of his unusual past habits in this Blizzard piece, many Whites fans been discussing his out-of-the-norm rituals in response.

The shirt and tie to bed is so strange yet so endearing
