All Signs Are This – Leeds United Supremo On Marcelo Bielsa’s Future


Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has insisted that all the signs indicate that Marcelo Bielsa will be at Elland Road next season.

Bielsa signed a two-year deal with Leeds when he joined the club last summer and has navigated the club to a third-place finish in the Championship, narrowly missing out on automatic promotion to the Premier League.


Leeds are set to take on Derby County on Saturday in the first leg of their playoff semi-final tie but there are fears that Bielsa could trigger a rumoured break clause in his contract to leave if the Whites do not make it to the Premier League.

The Argentine has tried to calm down such speculation and Radrizzani stressed that the Leeds head coach has already started preparations for next season.


The Leeds owner believes the signs are there that Bielsa wants to stay and the club will sit down with him and finalise everything at the end of the campaign.

“Every time I’ve spoken to Marcelo he’s expressed his intention to continue with the job, whatever happens”, Radrizzani told the Times in an interview.

“He’s already started working on next season, improving the facilities and integrating players from our under-23 squad. All the signs are that he wants to continue.


“The club have an option for another year on the contract which we intend to take up, but in every relationship, you need desire from both parties.

“The desire is there and at the right moment we will finalise things.”

Bielsa has indicated that promotion to the Premier League will not be the key factor in his decision on his future at Leeds.
