Leeds United remain keen on Marcelo Bielsa continuing as Whites manager beyond the end of this season, according to journalist David Anderson.
The Lowdown: Bielsa’s future unclear
The 66-year-old continues to be a much-loved figure at Elland Road, even if Leeds have been far from convincing in the Premier League this season.
Bielsa only signed a one-year extension last summer, though, so he will be out of contract once the current campaign reaches its conclusion.
There is no confirmation either way regarding his next move, with the Argentine typically keeping things close to his chest.
The Latest: Journalist makes key claim over Bielsa’s future
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Anderson claimed that Leeds still want Bielsa to stay on as manager despite their difficult season so far.
The journalist outlined: “He’s very much a 24/7 manager. You usually have an idea of what they want to do, and certainly, Leeds’ position as it stands is they want him to carry on. So, as things stand, Leeds will want him to stay.”
The Verdict: Better if he stays
While some may feel as though Bielsa is slowly running out of steam as Leeds manager, it is easy to forget that he has had to deal with numerous injuries to key players this season.
Bielsa is still a hugely influential figure who is the right man for the job for another season. With key players slowly returning to the squad from injury, these next few months are a perfect opportunity to prove that he is worth keeping at Elland Road for at least one more year.
