    ...appoint Marcelo Bielsa as their new manager?!

    Leeds United: Marcelo Bielsa signs contract to become new manager

    Genuine wtf moment this. How on earth have they attracted arguably the most influential coach of the modern game to fucking Elland Road?

    He's a bit temperamental like, so could easily blow up in their faces. But, I mean, a mind-boggling appointment. Would be buzzing if he showed up here, so in that sense: fair play to them.

    I'm sure he could get paid a fortune at various other clubs too .
     
  4. Can’t wait to see him in the championship. Genius/nutcase.

    Exactly. The idea that he couldn't get deeper pockets in England to hire him is for the birds, let alone the mega-bucks on offer for older, big name coaches in the Middle East, China etc.

    Genuinely crazy appointment.

    Leeds are still a name in football, weather we like it or not. The reputation and potential of that club is massive.

    If it goes to his general form, they’ll be flying the first 4 months then dramatically fall away. I would have liked him here at some point as an intriguing experiment, very interested to see how it works out at Leeds.

    Has managed 1 and a half seasons worth of Football in his last three appointments. Admittedly thats slightly skewed by the 2 days he spent in charge of Lazio. He's been involved in legal battles with the last two. Theres a reason not many clubs will touch him.




    Good video on why, like @Comeback_Kenwyne says, he's one most influential coach of the modern game.

    Is he the guy who had Bilbao playing amazing footy a few years ago? Beat Man Utd away? If so how the fuck have they got him....CEO must have friends going back a long way which is all that counts - and lets face it, if he gets them up Leeds Utd are a big name in Europe still.

    He’s a bit of a mentalist, similar to Di Canio.

    Interesting appointment nonetheless.

    It’ll end in tears, he hasn’t been the manager of a few years ago when he was touted for Barcelona etc. Nearly took Lille down to Ligue 2 last season despite spending heavily.

    What I find most unbelievable is that there are people who don't know who he is.
