‘Far more logical choice than Bielsa’ – Leeds fans on Twitter mixed over big manager report

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern have been discussing their vacant managerial position as Steve Bruce’s name has started coming up in conversation. The Villa manager looks set to leave Birmingham after losing the play-off final, leaving the club in financial disarray, however with Leeds links to Marcelo Bielsa, the Bruce rumours are somewhat disappointing.

Leeds United fans are hardly in a position to be picky over their next gaffer. The club sacked Paul Heckingbottom last Friday after the ex-Barnsley manager failed to have the desired impact at the club after being appointed in February. Now though, the club has been linked to both Claudio Ranieri and Bielsa as well as Bruce, with a number of fans extremely disappointed that they could end up with Bruce.

Things could have been so different for Bruce. The former Manchester United defender lost the playoff final 1-0 to Slavisa Jokanovic’s Fulham at Wembley, although if they’d won that game things would have been so different. Aston Villa wouldn’t be facing administration and Bruce would be safe in his job, planning for life in the Premier League, however, he’s now in a position of uncertainty and could end up in Yorkshire with the unforgiving task of trying to get Leeds United back into the Premier League.
