Barring a huge turnaround, Marcelo Bielsa will be on the bench for Leeds United on Saturday afternoon for the opening of the Premier League season at Manchester United. In remarks repeated this Thursday by Sky Sports, the former OM technician indicated that his contractual situation was « already resolved« . Indeed, the Argentine coach was out of contract with the Peacocks since June 30.
« As usual, it will be a year, added the 66-year-old coach who will continue his fourth season with the club from the North of England, his second in the Premier League. For me, Leeds United are an amazing club. Rarely does a club invest so much in improving training facilities.. « The leaders of the Peacocks have also invested in the transfer market this summer by offering him in particular Jack Harrison (ex-Manchester City) and Junior Firpo (ex-FC Barcelona) for respectively 12.80 million and 15 million euros .
