The Argentine boss was one of four men to have been named on the shortlist for August’s award, alongside Lee Bowyer (Charlton Athletic), Steve Cooper (Swansea City) and Lee Johnson (Bristol City).
Bielsa continued his impressive record as Whites boss, having guided his side to four wins, one draw and one defeat in their opening six games of the campaign, leaving the Elland Road outfit in third position and conceding just three goals in that time (BBC).
There has been a general consensus amongst a number of fanbases that the winner of the award has a ‘curse put on them’ (The Times), which will have left a number of the Leeds supporters keen for the Argentine to miss out.
However, many of them have shared their congratulatory messages to the 64-year-old and continued to praise their manager.
Here are just some of their reactions…
Bielsa doesn’t need this curse, Bowyer deserves it though

We don’t want it, Bielsa doesn’t want it, we only want that trophy at the end of the season. Bowyer please.
