Many Leeds fans have been reacting on social media after one supporter slammed the Mirror for suggesting Marcelo Bielsa has been an £8million gamble.

The newspaper noted that the Argentine had been brought to West Yorkshire on a £4million-a-season contract, which ate up a large proportion of our transfer budget, and the board’s decision does not look like it will return automatic promotion.

Our defeats over the Easter weekend also got a mention, as they left our hopes of a top-two finish hanging in the balance while the players looked exhausted, after reaping the rewards of the boss’ appointment for much of the season.

One supporter, though, took note of the suggestion that Bielsa was a gamble which looks set to backfire, by noting that we are actually 23 points better off than we were a year ago, despite hardly changing the squad on offer.

The players also regularly claim they have seen vast improvements in their own abilities since working with Bielsa, and that is a stunning foundation to lay inside your first year in a job that often has a short tenure.

This is what Leeds fans had to say about it…
