Bielsa's track record in football suggests he will be worth the anxiety the length of the talks have caused.

But the drawn out process has even got to former player Tony Dorigo, who commented via Twitter that he just wants the appointment to be made official.

Dorigo is echoing the sentiments of thousands of Leeds fans who just want to get Bielsa in and see the club move forward with their preparations for the new season.

The fixtures for next season are released on Thursday (18/6) and pre-season begins the following Monday (24/6).

When Bielsa is appointed, one of the most intriguing experiments in football will begin, meshing Latin American tactics with the often rugged English Championship.

Former Ajax and Tottenham striker Mido is fascinated and has said that he will be watching.

If Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani wanted to raise Leeds' profile for the right reasons, landing Bielsa is a giant step in the right direction.

First the Whites just have to get the deal over the line.
