Marcelo Bielsa is a man who can keep his passion hidden at Leeds United.
However, every now and again it slips through and we’re starting to see it more and more in the Leeds dugout.
Footage has emerged after Stuart Dallas scored the second in the 3-0 win over Southampton, and it was the goal that secured the three points.
Bielsa knew this and pumped his fist twice before stalking up and down his technical area.
Raphinha made it three as Southampton fell apart towards the end.
One Leeds fan posted the footage and said, “Love Bielsa’s reaction for our second [on Tuesday night].”
Plenty of Leeds fans felt exactly the same way.

Bielsa’s aim this season was to secure our top-flight status and analyse the division and our opponents properly to take us on another step next season.
With 13 games left, he’s almost done it already. We’re probably one win away from safety and we could easily get that against Aston Villa on Saturday.
It must be very satisfying for Bielsa, who has never managed in the Premier League before, and it’s a big two fingers to critics who said he wouldn’t be able to hack it.
The love is true as well. His passion for Leeds is matched by the fans, who absolutely love his reaction to the Dallas goal.
We can’t even imagine what the love-in will be like when fans are allowed back into Elland Road. And that could come in the last match of the season against West Brom.
Anyone who gets a ticket for that has truly struck gold.
In the meantime, here are the best reactions from delighted Leeds fans…

Just gotta love Bielsa and his reaction when we score. The two fisted downward punch followed by him marching up and down the technical area. Pure joy to watch. #lufc https://t.co/CLJRWY4GYn

Bielsa’s fallen in love with Leeds. The signing of the summer will hopefully once again be Marcelo. On the pitch he’s transformed us! https://t.co/M6hg8bU7OM
