Leeds fans react as Marcelo Bielsa comments on his future

A number of Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to react to comments made by Marcelo Bielsa concerning his future at Elland Road.

Bielsa has done an incredible job with the Whites. He succeeded where so many had failed before him in taking Leeds back to the Premier League. And he did it with an exhilarating brand of football.

“If the club needs an answer prior to the end of the season, I will respond in the anticipated manner,” he said, as reported by Leeds Live. “But I would like it to leave it clear that Leeds as a project surpasses me as a coach.

“Any coach would like to work at this club, given how it has been designed.”

Bielsa’s hint that he would feel like the privileged one if offered the chance to stay has caught many fans off-guard.

Many have expressed a belief that they did not realise that they could appreciate him more. He is certainly looking destined to go down as one of the club’s most popular figures of all-time.

It is clear that Bielsa would be signed to a long-term contract if the majority of fans had their way.

With that in mind, here is how some of the supporters have reacted to Bielsa’s suggestion that the Leeds project ‘surpasses’ him as a coach…
