Bielsa will always be seen as a hero at Elland Road.

The Argentine not only took the club to the Premier League after 16 years, he has also transformed the club completely.

He showed his class, decency, humbleness, and respect and developed a strong footballing philosophy at the club.

Players like Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford wouldn’t have reached the levels they are now today had it not been for Bielsa.

He has brought passion and dream to the football club, and it’s unthinkable that he won’t be there in the dugout anymore.

From Patrick Bamford to Liam Cooper, when Noel Whelan and Jermain Beckford, tributes are overflowing on social media after the news broke out.

The club will move on, the fans will move on, but the legacy of Bielsa will always remain at Leeds United. Thank you, Marcelo, for everything.
