Leeds United tipped to tie up major contract agreement


Leeds United supporters can hardly wait for September to roll around.

The weekend of Saturday 12th will see the Whites grace the Premier League once again - more than 16 years after their last appearance.

It's been a long, hard road so you know that the Yorkshire side are not going to take the challenge lightly.

Marcelo Bielsa has been a massive part of the club's recent success.

Since taking over two years ago the Argentine has completely revolutionised the way that the Whites play.

His relentless, high tempo style saw them cruise to victory in the Championship last season - ultimately winning the league by 10 points.

If Leeds are to prosper next season in the top tier, they'll need Bielsa to guide them again.

Speculation has been mounting over the head coach's future at the club, with the 65-year-old technically out of contract.


But with a new deal reportedly on the cusp of being signed, Michael Brown has insisted that Bielsa will be very much looking forward to the new campaign.

Speaking to Football Insider, Brown said: “I think they’ll just be looking to get all the plans in place, Marcelo Bielsa is working very, very hard for the new season.

“They’ll be looking at recruitment, they’ll be looking at training methods, they’ll be looking at details to continue improving on what they’ve already done which is a wonderful job.

“I just think he’s enjoying managing Leeds United, he wants to continue doing that and he works in his way and no wonder – just look at how good a job he has done.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

Giving Marcelo Bielsa a new contract is an absolute no-brainer for me.

The impact that the Argentine has had at Leeds United has been nothing short of sensational.

A side who were flailing around in the middle of the Championship, Bielsa turned them into a side who were not only feared, but admired.

After taking the second tier by storm last season, supporters are incredibly excited to see what's in store for the next chapter of Bielsa's Leeds adventure.


A man of clear principles, the head coach will not change his ways to help the Whites to grind out results next term.

Instead he'll approach it with the same philosophy as he does at the moment - outworking the opponents and using a clear formula to pick up results.

A contract may not yet be sealed, but for supporters of the west Yorkshire side this is a deal that needs to be done.
