With Leeds United’s promotion dream coming to an end for the 2018/19 campaign on Wednesday night as we fell to defeat to Derby County in the Championship Play-Off Semi-Finals, manager Marcelo Bielsa wouldn’t be drawn on his future immediately following the game.

“I Will Listen To This Proposal” – Bielsa Comments On His Future After “Painful” Leeds Defeat

Speaking immediately after the game, Bielsa explained.

“As you can imagine, it’s not convenient to talk about this right now. This process, you know about it, is that if the club offers me the possibility to carry on I will listen to their proposal.”

With it being recently confirmed that his deal simply gave Leeds the opportunity to walk away over the summer should they wish, but Bielsa himself couldn’t walk away – especially on promotion, Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay had a great update on the situation yesterday.

The answer from Leeds to Bielsa’s ‘I will listen’ will be met by talks on the second year and given we already know that plans are afoot for further training ground changes at Bielsa’s behest, I’m confident he’ll still be here.
