Leeds: Agbonlahor thinks Bielsa could walk

Leeds: Agbonlahor thinks Bielsa could walk -Leeds United

Pundit Gabby Agbonlahor believes Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa may walk out at Elland Road, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Elland Road source

Football Insider provided an update on the 66-year-old’s future earlier this month. They were informed by an Elland Road source that there is a ‘growing expectation’ among the Leeds hierarchy that Bielsa won’t return to take charge of a fifth campaign.

How many signings should Leeds make in January?









Leeds have won just three of their 15 Premier League games this season and currently sit six points above the relegation zone.

Bielsa’s future is thought to be up in the air with Victor Orta compiling a shortlist of possible new managers.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s comments

Agbonlahor, who regularly features on talkSPORT, was talking to Football Insider about that source’s claim.

He was asked if he thinks this could be the end for the Argentine, who he called ‘outstanding’, to which he said:

“That is a tough one, they will look at the end of the season.

“If Leeds finishes lower than they did last season he might think ‘I’ve taken this team as far as I can. I haven’t been given the investment that other teams have’. He may choose to walk then.

“It’s very tough to predict but if I was Leeds I would be doing everything I can to make him stay because he’s an outstanding manager.

“No other names really jump out at you for Leeds.”

The Verdict: Is the end near?

Leeds fans will, unfortunately, have to realise that Bielsa won’t be around at Elland Road forever.

Should the Whites fall way short of their 59-point tally from last season, then perhaps Bielsa will in fact feel he has taken the club as far as possible and walk out, as Agbonlahor mentions.

Hopefully, though, Bielsa can steer the Whites way clear of any relegation troubles over the coming months and go on to enjoy a solid second half of the season, which could possibly persuade him to have one more year in Yorkshire.
