The Argentine arrives at Elland Road with an outstanding reputation, having enjoyed a magnificent coaching career, which has seen him win titles in Argentina, as well as manage his country at a World Cup.
Since then he has managed the Chilean national side, before taking on Europe, managing in Spain and France in recent years.
Now, he takes over at Elland Road, with the view of guiding Leeds out of the Sky Bet Championship and back to the Premier League for the first time since 2004.
The appointment of Bielsa has been well received at Elland Road, with Becchio, who played for Leeds 2008 and 2013, moving to praise the Whites for the appointment of his fellow Argentinian ahead of the new season.
The 34-year-old took to Twitter to say:
