‘Unbelievable if it happens’ – Leeds fans on Twitter still can’t believe their luck

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern are pinching themselves this morning as they try to wrap their heads around the fact that their club is days away from appointing Marcelo Bielsa. A manager of the Argentine’s calibre very rarely takes a job in the Championship and it will mean the pressure will be on the Yorkshire club to go up. You can read the latest update on Bielsa in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The Leeds fans propping our bar up will be hoping big things are around the corner with Bielsa in charge of the club. Reports coming out of the club have suggested that money has not been an issue in negotiations, but instead, Bielsa has had reservations over the way the club is run, although those issues seem to have been resolved now and the club will have the legendary ex-Argentina gaffer as their new man in the dugout.

The Whites will be hoping that they can mount a serious title challenge under Bielsa and if he can get the club back to the promised land of the Premier League he will go down as a hero in Leeds, as the man who ended their longest stay outside of the top-flight in their history. This season will be Leeds 15th straight year outside of English football’s top tier, and Bielsa will know that as he attempts to put the club back amongst the big boys.

The Leeds supporters in the Tavern are rightly getting impatient over the deal, as they want it wrapped up with Bielsa tied to a contract as soon as possible, given that they believe the Argentine is the one to get them back in the Premier League.
