It’s always my ambition has been to England to work and I have often the possibility to do so. I, however, wanted to wait until the right project came by”, said Bielsa. ,,The offer of Leeds is not to refuse me.” The club ended last season in the thirteenth place.

Bielsa was for many years a coach of the Argentina (1998-2004) and Chile (2007-2011). He led Athletic Bilbao to the final of the Europa League and the Spanish cup. His final choices were less successful. With Olympique Marseille got Bielsa in 2015 after one competitieduel in his second season angry. At Lazio he left a year later after two days. Last season was the Argentine after a few months sidelined by Lille. His capriciousness earned him the nickname ‘El Loco’ (the crazy).
