Former Leeds man makes big claim after Marcelo Bielsa update



Danny Mills believes that Marcelo Bielsa will be backed in the transfer market after he agreed to stay on at Elland Road for another season.

The Argentinian’s future was up in the air following their play-off defeat to Derby, however after talks with key figures at the club, Bielsa has decided to stay.

And, speaking to Football Insider, Mills, who made almost 150 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit, revealed that he expects Bielsa’s top targets to be delivered.

I believe he was always happy to stay, definitely. There are no issues with where he lives or the club. He really likes being at Leeds.

What was the sticking point? From what I hear, he clearly believes he needs to add players to what’s been a thin squad hit by injuries. He wants one or two targets, and won’t have stayed unless the club agreed to get them. They would be massively important to him.”

However, the ex-England international also warned the hierarchy that they have to keep the promises made to the manager.

It’ll be down to transfers and budgets. Leeds should be very careful about what they do and promise Marcelo Bielsa. He is a man of principle. If he doesn’t get what he wants by the time the transfer window closes, he could just walk out.”

The Verdict

What Mills says here makes a lot of sense and there’s no way that Bielsa would’ve agreed to stay without assurances from the top.

It’s clear that the squad needs new additions and even if one or two key players have to leave, if the money is reinvested on players that Bielsa wants it could work.

Now, the board have to deliver on their promises, otherwise as Mills states, Bielsa won’t hang around.
