Bielsa has always enjoyed working with passionate fan-bases during his career to date.
And the Argentine boss believes that Leeds share similar qualities to some of his former clubs.
Bielsa said: “First, because I was offered the option to work. I think Leeds is a club with many similar aspects to Marseille and Athletic, for example the link between the city and the team. The fans are very passionate. Lille also has this feature. That’s why I make this choice, for these reasons.
“We talk a lot about the relationship between English people and football, their love. It’s always a beautiful experience to lead.”
Leeds supporters have already taken Bielsa to their hearts, after what has been a brilliant start.
Bielsa has transformed Leeds into a side who are playing the slickest football in the Championship.
The Whites are currently leading the way in the second tier, and remain unbeaten in league action this season.
Leeds won 3-0 against Preston North End last night to continue their flying start to the campaign.
Bielsa's side are next in action at the weekend when they take on Birmingham City.
