Marcelo Bielsa set to get the Leeds United job inside 24 hours

Paul Heckingbottom & Leeds United

Leeds United are on the verge of appointing a new manager. Again.

At the start of the month Leeds United confirmed the news which many had long been expected: manager Paul Heckingbottom had been sacked.

Heckingbottom had a terrible time of things in his four month spell at Elland Road.

As Leeds ended the Championship season in 13th place, Heckingbottom only won four matches out of 16.

Marcelo Bielsa & Leeds

Who will be the next Leeds United manager?

Incredibly, Leeds have had 10 different managers since 2014. Garry Monk, in the 2016-17 season, is the only manager to have lasted a season at Leeds.

The big name being linked with the Elland Road vacancy in recent weeks has been Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa has been unemployed since getting the heave-ho from Lille in 2017.

But is Bielsa really the right man for Leeds? Firstly their are doubts about communication issues. And what does Bielsa know about the Championship?

Bielsa could be the Leeds boss in 24 hours

On Tuesday, the Telegraph are reporting the Leeds United may be about to announce Bielsa as their new boss.

Indeed, Leeds are tipped to make the confirmation within 24 hours. Readers are told:

The Argentinian had initially appeared reluctant to take a job in the second tier of English football, having spent the majority of his coaching career in more salubrious surroundings, but appears to have finally been persuaded to take on the challenge in an ambitious move by the Leeds board.

Barring any last-minute hitches, Bielsa’s appointment should be confirmed in the next few hours as Telegraph Sport understands the 62-year-old has agreed, in principle, to take the job.

Biesla has previously been in charge of Argentina, Chile, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille.
