At the end of the contract next June, Marcelo Bielsa still does not know if he will still be on the bench at Leeds next season.
Landed in 2018 at Leeds, then in the Championship (English 2nd division), Marcelo Bielsa managed the feat of bringing the club back to the Premier League, where the Peacocks have been doing well since the start of the season. An idyll which could however end next summer.
Linked to residents of the Elland Road until June 2021, “El loco” has still not extended his contract, leaving room for speculation. If the management of the Whites seems inclined to see the Argentinian coach back up, uncertainty reigns regarding the intentions of the former OM coach.
Leeds have their backs
“If he stays, we’ll be delighted. He knows that we are happy to work with him. So it’s up to him to play. We are awaiting his decision but in any case, we will analyze the options and what to do if Marcelo no longer wants to be with us, ”said Andrea Radrizzani, owner of Leeds, on CBS Sports.
Faced with the unpredictable Bielsa, Radrizzani is surely right to ensure his rear, although he does not despair of convincing the 65-year-old technician to extend the adventure. “We hope he will continue but we are still preparing the club in case, he said. I think the team has not finished growing and Marcelo has not finished his job here. “
