Exclusive: Ian Holloway talks Bielsa and ‘hell of a statement’ at Leeds



Leeds United take on Reading later this evening as the Whites look to get themselves back to the Premier League at the end of the campaign.

It’s been a good season so far, and Marcelo Bielsa has been a real change for the better at the helm of the club.

He’s certainly been different, too, with the way he has gone about things and it was interesting to note that, for him, being loved and earning respect is more important than winning games – though he wants to do that too.

He does, for sure, seem a very honest man with plenty of integrity, though the Spygate saga – whatever you think of it – might come into contention with that view.

What does former manager Ian Holloway think of it all, then? We caught up with the EFL on Quest pundit and he told us exclusively…

“That’s a hell of a statement.

“I don’t know him but if that’s how he is that’s great.

“I agree with his philosophies¬†and the way he talks about tactics and the depth he goes into.

“It’s remarkable the changes he has made but then there was the Spygate thing was a step too far for me, so there’s a bit of a contradiction there almost.

“I hope that’s the truth what he said, though, because I do believe you have one chance to build a reputation and it’s not about winning all the time or losing all the time.

“If you keep going every dog has his day and I hope Bielsa gets his in this country because he came to the Championship and he selected the club by blowing them away with his presentations. So good luck to him.”
