We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United
Paul Robinson has said that he is “100% certain that Marcelo Bielsa will sign another deal with Leeds United after a successful first season back in the Premier League.
Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani revealed last week that Bielsa will make an announcement at the end of the season and said there was a “will” to continue together.
Robinson also said that Bielsa will have been given assurances about how much money he has to spend in the summer.
Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News Robinson said, “I’m 100% certain that he will sign another deal.
“He wants more than anything to see the fans back in Elland Road, and the fans want to see him in the Premier League.
“He’s still got unfinished business at Leeds but what he’s done so far has been nothing short of incredible – taking a mid-table Championship team and turning them into a team that’s challenging for the top half of the Premier League and possibly even a spot in Europe.
“With success comes expectation and it’s how the 49er’s money is used in the summer and who he brings in that will dictate the future.
“He’s obviously going to be given assurances about a transfer fund and I think he’ll want to progress in the Premier League next season.”
It’s promising to be an exciting summer for Leeds fans and it should kick off with a new deal for Bielsa.
That will be a huge boost for Leeds and it will help attract top players to the club.
Bielsa will be targeting a top-half finish next season after a very successful first campaign back in the top-flight.
