Bielsa has already made an impact as Leeds boss on his first official day in charge

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern got their first glimpses of Marcelo Bielsa during his press conference and will be delighted with what his plans for the club are.

The Whites appointed the new manager last week and the locals will be expecting him to have a huge impact on the team this season as they look to achieve promotion to the Premier League.

He met his players for the first time on Monday, and according to The Times, he has already put them through their paces and has shown a sign of what is to be expected.

The media outlet claimed that the former Argentina and Chile international manager has different methods and approaches to training that others will have, with attackers training at different times as the defenders.

He is also a firm believer of working his players hard, which was evident during his first day at training, with his squad having to complete a double session.

Landlord’s Verdict

The approach shown by Bielsa will be encouraging to the fans in the Tavern as it shows what he will expect from his players and will constantly work them hard throughout the season, especially if he is already working the squad hard now.

There would be a concern that the team would be too fatigued ahead of the Championship campaign, however, the residents will be hoping it is rather beneficial than negative.
