'Amazing', 'Incredible' – These Leeds fans react as Phil Hay posts 'superb' Bielsa tweet
Just before Thorp Arch was mothballed a photo of Marcelo Bielsa marching to work attracted lots of attention from Leeds United fans.
Some were in awe of their manager carrying on as normal. Others were concerned for his safety with fans regularly looking to take selfies with him.

Now that the UK has been placed in lockdown, with the advice of PM Boris Johnson to stay at home, Phil Hay has updated the image.

The ‘new’ image showed Bielsa marching back home away from Thorp Arch and Leeds fans are loving it.
Sheffield United were the last club to close their training ground on Monday and it means that all professional footballers are now training alone at home.
The image from Hay is a bit of fun but it also carries a message for all Leeds fans – to stay at home.
That’s absolutely crucial now as the UK battles to stem the tide of the Coronavirus.
Times are tough but we will get through this and we imagine that when Thorp Arch re-opens, this Bielsa image will do the rounds again – in reverse.
We look forward to that day.
In the meantime, here are the best reactions from Leed fans…
*Stands and applauds*
