Leeds United fans were professing their love for Marcelo Bielsa after the Argentine coach commented on how he deals with the expectations of managing the club.
Ahead of the Championship fixture against Reading, the former Marseille boss claimed that he understands the supporters’ desire to get promoted. He then went on to laud the Elland Road faithful, talking about how the passion of the fans makes the job attractive (via Leeds Live). The Whites haven’t been in the best of form lately after letting a nine-point gap to third-place go down to just three following a horrible run of results (via WhoScored).
It only took one game for Bielsa to profess his love for the supporters of the West Yorkshire club as he claimed the level of support ‘exceeded’ his expectations when he took charge of the team for the first time (via Yorkshire Evening Post). Indeed, Bielsa’s comments have made the fans fall in love with him as they took to Twitter to laud the head coach. Here are some of the reactions:
It’s the main reason he’s here, the size of the club and the atmosphere we generate. 😍

You don’t see photos like that with many of our past managers, I hope he realises just how special he is
