Marcelo Bielsa spotted in his Leeds gear on social outing

Marcelo Bielsa spotted in his Leeds gear on social outing

Marcelo Bielsa has certainly made himself a favourite with the Leeds United fans since arriving at Elland Road this summer.

The Argentine manager was considered a huge coup in the summer and his ability to lead a team is already in full swing.

Leeds currently sit within a point of the leaders in the Championship, despite the Whites having a number of injury concerns throughout the campaign.


However, Bielsa may have just done something to endear him to the club’s faithful even further than he has already managed to achieve.

Former Chile FA chief Harold Mayne-Nicholls visited the man he once had guide the nation and took a photo alongside him and posted it to Twitter.

Bielsa was still wearing his Leeds gear in the photo as he enjoyed some time with Mayne-Nicholls.

The Verdict:

Bielsa has been an extremely popular man at the club since his arrival and appears to have brought some confidence to the club that it could finally be their year to win promotion to the Premier League.

The Argentine seems to have been able to overcome a number of obstacles during his time at Elland Road, largely with the injuries he has had to deal with and sees his side continue to sit near the summit of the Championship table.

Leeds will turn their attention to Saturday when they travel to Bolton Wanderers and they will look to continue to keep the pressure on Norwich City in their quest for the three points.

Leeds fans – thoughts?
