Bielsa has recently been appointed the new Leeds head coach, and the Argentine will be looking to guide the West Yorkshire outfit back to the Premier League.
The Argentine is one of the most innovative managers in the world and is a very high-profile figure in the game.
The 62-year-old was in charge of Athletic Bilbao from 2011 until 2013 and was quite successful during his spell at the Spanish club.
Bielsa has compared Bilbao to Leeds, and has been quoted as saying by The Daily Star Sunday (print edition, page 49, July 1, 2018): “A season ticket in Bilbao is almost like an ID card and I’m hopeful it will be the same here.
“You can see how the club connects with the city. I know everything a foreigner could about Leeds and what it means to the fans.”
Exciting times ahead for Leeds United
Leeds are one of the biggest clubs in England, but the Whites have not featured in the Premier League since 2004.
In recent years, the West Yorkshire outfit have become also-rans in the Championship, but perhaps things are about to change.
It will be important, though, that Leeds back Bielsa in the summer transfer window and sign the players he wants.
