Beren Cross shares if Leeds would sack Marcelo Bielsa this season

Leeds United are currently struggling in the Premier League this season, having won once against Watford.

Marcelo Bielsa has never seen his position at the club questioned, but fans have started wondering about what could happen if the Whites drop into the relegation zone long-term.

Beren Cross has been questioned on that, and the reliable journalist believes that El Loco would blame himself for any struggle.

Writing in the latest Q&A for Leeds Live, Cross was left scratching his head at the possibility of Radrizzani making that decision and wondered if there were any clauses in his contract.

“Honestly, I don’t know,” he said. “I doubt even Bielsa knows how he would react to that situation and, of course, he never wants to predict the future anyway.

“My gut says he would want to get Leeds out of the mess he would, predictably, blame himself for. If Leeds wanted him to go and they were in the bottom three, I wonder what clauses there are in place to protect him or whether he would just step aside if he was not wanted.

“It would have to be pretty desperate and irreconcilable for Leeds to want to do that, mid-season though. In short, yes I think he would still be in charge.”

No chance.

We really can’t see this ever happening.

Having said that, we don’t even want to imagine that happening after the last three years and how magical they have been.

Bielsa is the sole reason we are back in the big time and we have some of the players that we get to watch every single week.

Looking at the likes of Kalvin Phillips too, would they ever have been transformed by any other coach? Most likely not.

This may be Bielsa’s final season at Elland Road anyway given his rolling contract, and we are still backing him to turn things around and push us up that table.

Once all of our injured players return in the next couple of weeks, it is then when he will be judged on the results – bring it on.
