Jamie O’Hara claims Leeds United fans would be “devastated” if Marcelo Bielsa was to quit Elland Road for Tottenham.
There’s been some speculation linking Biesa with a move to North London since Jose Mourinho was sacked by the European Super League rebels on Monday.
Ex-Spurs midfielder O’Hara wants to see Bielsa in the Tottenham dugout, suggesting it would be a big coup for his old club.
However, he expects a major fallout from Leeds fans if that happens.
“I would say Bielsa,” O’Hara said on talkSPORT, as quoted on the radio station’s website. “I think he’d be absolutely brilliant and the fans would love him.
“If you can try and prise him away form there it’d be unbelievable.
“The Leeds fans would be devastated and there would be uproar but Spurs are bigger than Leeds.”
Put a lid on it, Jamie
Spurs are in the European Super League for a matter of hours and O’Hara claims they’re a bigger club than Leeds.
They’re not even the biggest club in North London.
Spurs may be in a better place right now and are well off financially but there’s no denying there’s a gulf between these two teams when it comes to support.
You don’t see people posting ‘Tottenham would have taken more’ about away fans, do you?
Spurs wouldn’t be anywhere near where they are right now if it wasn’t for Mauricio Pochettino and a loyal academy product in Harry Kane who’s yet to move away.
Poch has gone and they’ve started to crumble. Once Kane has gone, they’ll be on their knees.
Leeds are on the up and up and we can guarantee that in the next five years, we’ll be finishing above Tottenham.
