Some Leeds United fans were lauding Marcelo Bielsa after Phil Hay provided an update on Real Betis’ interest in the Argentine manager.
According to The Athletic’s journalist, the Spanish outfit registered their interest in appointing the former Marseille coach, however, Bielsa’s people were left ‘nonplussed’ by the speculation last week. He also went on to confirm that the South American will be at the club next season if they are playing Premier League football.
Are you nervous about Marcelo Bielsa potentially leaving the club?
Well, the only thing that can see stop Leeds on playing in the top-flight is themselves. The Whites are in a great run of form recently and have won each of their last four games in the Championship. Meanwhile, their closest rivals Fulham and West Bromwich Albion have somewhat stumbled with both clubs winning just two of their last four league games.
The update from Hay saw some supporters praise the 64-year-old, who, for the time being, seems to have the club heading towards promotion. Here are a selection of tweets:
Everyone wants to play Bielsa ball, but he’s ours 💙💛

@RealBetis can seriously do one. He loves us, we love him, he deserves to show the whole what an absolute legend he is. And the best place to do this is the premier league. #lufc #LeedsUnited #MOT https://t.co/FXJOKjqiq2

He has added value to every player at the club, filled the stands again. Last 2 seasons have been an amazing atmosphere around the club. It’s a great time to be a leeds fan again.
