Marcelo Bielsa has now officially become Leeds United‘s 17th manager of the past decade.
Bielsa has come as quite the coup for the Yorkshire side having managed some of the biggest names in European football.
From national sides Argentina and Chile to the domestic sides of Athletic Bilbao and most recently Lille, the new Leeds man has quite the CV.
Famous players and managers alike have had plenty of good things to say about the former defender who is widely known as “El Loco” – the crazy one.
He has been touted as an inspiration behind huge names in the sport, such as Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino and Diego Simeone, with his brand of pacey, attacking football revered by the football world.
