Vinnie Jones praises Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa

Vinnie Jones believes that Leeds Untied are on the cusp of promotion from the Championship and also paid credit to the club’s manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The Whites sit second in the league table with 13 games remaining in the season and have been firmly in the mix for automatic promotion all campaign.

The Yorkshire club are four points adrift of leaders West Brom, but all that’s important is staying in the top two and obtaining promotion automatically to avoid the dreaded play-offs.

Leeds are only three points above third-placed Fulham, while Brentford and Nottingham Forest are both only a further point behind them.

There is likely to be plenty of twists still left in the season, but the weekend win over Bristol City was a huge boost.

Ex-Leeds midfielder Jones has claimed that Bielsa is a colossal figure at his former club and that he is adored by all.


“Once they get back to the Premier League, I don’t think there will be any stopping this club,” Jones told the Sun.

“Leeds are so close now and have a fantastic manager in Bielsa, who everybody seems to love.”

TBR’s View:

Bielsa has made a gigantic impact since he walked through the doors at Elland Road in June 2018 and it would be a major shame if he was to leave the club without earning promotion.

His side have played some of the most eye-catching football the Championship has arguably ever seen and they were dazzling for much of last season, before running out of gas and losing in the play-offs.

Leeds will hope they have learned from their previous mistakes and that this is the year they finally get back to the top-flight.
