Bielsa reveals when he wants to decide his future with Leeds

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has revealed his preference to wait until the end of the season before making a decision about the extension of his contract at Elland Road. Bielsa joined the newly-promoted Premier League side in 2018 in the Championship and led them to the title in the 2019/20 season ensuring promotion to the Premier League for the first time since 2004. His contract with the club ends in June and he believes it is best for both parties to make their considerations at the end of the season. Leeds United have been one of the entertaining sides this season and will be looking to secure their place in the Premier League this season.

Leeds United are taking the Premier League by storm

In 2001, Leeds United looked destined for great things. Champions League semi-finalists, the Yorkshire club were one of the top teams in England, yet financial disaster struck, and Leeds were relegated by 2004. Now, 16 years later, Leeds are back in the Premier League. Leeds United were led back to the promised land by Marcelo Bielsa, a coach described as the ‘best in the world’ by Pep Guardiola. Armed with an attacking philosophy and a team that won the Championship title by ten clear points, Leeds have already taken the Premier League by storm in the 2020/21 season thus far. The question is, how well can the team perform? Premier League betting markets consider Leeds unlikely to be relegated at 10/1, but avoiding the drop will, of course, be the initial aim for Bielsa and co. Th...

Reiss Nelson hails aggressive Mikel Arteta

Reiss Nelson has praised Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta for his aggressive half-time wake-up call to his players which enabled them to edge past Championship side Leeds United with a 1 nil victory in the third round of the FA Cup at the Emirates on Monday night. Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds dominated the first-half of the game as the Gunners were second best but wasted opportunities to put the home side to the sword.

Lacazette initially revealed that Arteta shouted a lot while Arteta admitted that he was angered by his side's performance at half-time. Nelson, who came up with the winner admitted that it was nice that the new boss could play the role of goo...

Bielsa confirms that Arsenal will recall Nketiah from loan spell

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed that Arsenal will recall young striker Eddie Nketiah from his loan spell. The 20-year-old has not been used regularly in the Championship thus far and has scored 3 goals in 16 appearances, most of which were from the bench. However, Nketiah started the last two games for Leeds in the 5:4 win against Birmingham and the 1 all draw against promotion rivals West Brom, driving suggestions that Bielsa wanted to convince Arsenal to leave him be at Elland Road. He was subbed off in the game against West Brom and was replaced by Patrick Bamford who scored the equalizer for Leeds. Bielsa went on to admit that it may have been his last game for Leeds. “Yes, we know that he’s not going to continue with us,” Bielsa told reporters. GET THE LATEST FO...
