Leeds United fans believe that Marcelo Bielsa is the perfect manager for Ezgjan Alioski.
Alioski had a rather inconsistent first season with Leeds, after arriving last summer.
The Macedonian winger showed flashes of quality, but was often on the periphery of matches.
However, Leeds fans think that Bielsa’s seemingly imminent appointment could change his fortunes.
Looking forward to watching Bielsa turn Alioski into Arjen Robben. #lufc— Tasker (@Mr_Tasker) June 6, 2018
Seriously though, I think he’d make a good wing back if he gets some good defensive training— El Loco’s Elland Road Asylum (@19MOT19) June 6, 2018
Cooper and Dallas are toast for me, time to get rid. I do think Alioski is a player in Bielsa system if we get him. Left wing back or left wing. I have him coming good.— Macca (@macca7292) June 6, 2018
He is going to be all over Alioski, probably the only player in the squad that naturally fits in to a Bielsa team Saiz I think will struggle— Alex Wilcockson (@AlexWilcockson) June 11, 2018
What is it with the hatred of Alioski?he has it all in his locker,good coaching will prove that and bielsa loves hard working players,no wide player tracks back like Alioski last season— #del wright (@delwright21) June 11, 2018
I think we need wide players, so Roberts can be used as cover like Roofe. Think Alioski might go well for Bielsa, so my hope would be we spend on really quality wide man.— Dan Holdsworth (@ThirskRunner) June 6, 2018
From what I know about Bielsa* I reckon Alioski is gonna smash it next season #lufc— Tommo (@LUFC1992) June 5, 2018
*a lot more than I did 4 days ago
Alioski is one of the hardest working members of Leeds’ team, and Whites supporters think that Bielsa will immediately love the winger.
Bielsa is famed for his high-pressing style, which requires his players to work tirelessly throughout the match.
It could take some adjusting for the Leeds squad before they get used to the system, but Alioski has all the tools required to thrive in such a formation.
Alioski made 42 appearances for Leeds last term, scoring seven times and claiming five assists.
