‘If he walks, he’s a coward’ – Bielsa’s Leeds United future in the balance following report: Opinion



An air of uncertainty has swept over Elland Road after Leeds United were dumped out of the play-offs by Derby County on Wednesday night.

A thrilling 4-2 victory for the Rams saw them progress to the final at Wembley against Aston Villa but for Leeds the future is unknown.

Most importantly, it remains unclear whether manager Marcelo Bielsa will be hanging around or not.

The club hope he will stay but according to reports in the Telegraph he is waiting to see how their finances are looking before making a decision.

So, it is likely that if costs need to be cut, he will not be hanging around.

But is this a fair stance from the Argentinian?

Gary Hutchinson


“Sorry, but it’s not. He signed a contract and he should stick with them.

“His job isn’t done. He was brought in to win promotion and he’s still able to do that next season.

“If he walks, he’s a coward.”

George Harbey

“I would not blame him one bit.

“A manager like Bielsa needs backing, as with a couple of quality players, he could definitely guide them to a league title.

“He needed additions in January, and that has arguably cost them a place in the Premier League.”

Toby Wilding

“I could understand him walking.

“Bielsa has put so much into the club this year, and he will surely want to see others making that same commitment to Leeds over the summer.

“If they don’t, he may wonder what he is doing there.”
