Leeds sacked Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa after they had a 4-0 drink at home to Tottenham on Saturday afternoon, with the club’s chairman saying it was the toughest decision he had to make during his tenure.


A little about the topic

Marcelo was originally appointed manager of Leeds in 2018 and quickly betrayed himself to supporters with his entertaining, fast-paced style of play that eventually propelled the team back to the PL after a 16-year absence. White achieved a top-half finish in an impressive 2020-21 campaign but slipped to the relegation spots in 2021-22, with a fourth straight loss prompting the board to change dugouts.


What did Radrizzani say about Marcelo Bielsa?

Leeds United broke the record for most goals shipped in one month of football PL (20) after conceding four against Spurs at Elland Road and are now just two points above the drop zone at 16th. Marcelo paid the price for their poor form, with Yorkshire club chairman Andrea Radrizzani confirming his departure in an official statement on Sunday.

Andrea Radrizzani said it was the toughest decision he had to make during his time at Leeds United given all the success Bielsa had at the club. With Bielsa as their head coach, they’ve had three incredible campaigns and the good times are back at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa changed the culture of the club and brought a winning mentality to them all.

However, Radrizzani must act in the club’s best interest and believes changes are needed now to secure PL status. The latest results and performances did not live up to their expectations. According to Andrea Radrizzani they are in a precarious position in the league and Andrea believes now is the right time to bring in a new head coach to make an impact in the decisive phase of the season. Naturally Andrea along with everyone else in the club would like to thank Bielsa for his efforts and achievements and they wish him the very best for the future.
