Leeds United hired a maverick in Marcelo Bielsa, a manager dubbed El Loco – the Crazy One – and Whites supporters have been lauding the Argentine ever since.

He narrowly missed out on guiding the club to the long-awaited promised land of top-flight football in his first attempt, and holds the best points per game average of any head coach to have stepped inside Elland Road on a permanent basis.

Bielsa has kicked off the new campaign promisingly, too, with two wins and a draw on the board, as Leeds sit top of the Championship table helped by holding the second-best offensive and second-best defensive records in the division thus far.

For many Whites supporters, what Bielsa does off the field is just as important, with the Argentine regularly spotted walking around Leeds, enjoying what West Yorkshire has to offer, and taking pictures with fans.

Whites supporters certainly cannot get enough of that last part, as fans have been lauding Bielsa’s name once more on social media lately, after he replied to one supporter’s letter.

Terry Felipe had written to the boss wishing to share how grateful he was that the 64-year-old is our head coach, and received a response days later from Rodolfo Diego Flores – one of Bielsa’s assistants – with a personal message from the Argentine.

“I received a letter from you,” Bielsa’s message read. “I read it and I really appreciate your words.

“The staff and myself do our best to improve every day and try to achieve what we are looking for.

“I wish you a great year.”

When Felipe shared the boss’ response on Twitter, he captioned it: “Just when you thought you couldn’t love the man any more.”

And it seems the Elland Road faithful agreed, judging by these replies…

  • I think the only way we can almost emulate the present style of play is if CC was to be made Head Coach when/if MB leave.

  • I think it’s clear you are no better than HITC and their pathetic efforts at journalism.
    Trolling through twitter to repeat a story about nothing.

    Just a complete bunch of sad and useless bell ends

    • Or it’s a piece of news of interest to many that you don’t agree with, but you turned into the sad sack resorting to childish insults? Just a thought. You don’t have to return Geebo, bye.
