Radrizzani told Leeds’s official website: “I am thrilled to welcome Marcelo and his staff to Leeds United.
“He is a coach that I have admired for many years and when the opportunity arose to bring him to Elland Road, we made it our top priority for the summer.
“Marcelo has a wealth of experience and he will use that to create a new culture and a winning mentality at our football club.
“I would like to thank Victor Orta and Angus Kinnear for all of the hard work that has gone into this appointment and I look forward to progressing together.”
Hard work starts now
Getting Bielsa is a huge coup indeed for Leeds, who have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and have become also-rans in the Championship in recent seasons.
The hard work, though, starts now. The Whites have to back Bielsa in the summer transfer window and will have to do their best to sign the players that he wants.
