Smyth quotes Bielsa as saying, “I feel integrated with the city and also this region in England and also what surrounds it, Yorkshire.”
There were strong hints from Bielsa that he would be staying at Elland Road beyond this season which comes as music to all of our collective ears.
He has taken us back to the Premier League and he’s kept us there, there is nothing more we want than to see Bielsa lead us for many years to come.
Many Leeds fans absolutely loved Bielsa’s comments and there was a lot of love for El Loco on social media following his press conference.
Some fans got emotional following Bielsa’s quotes as he was saying everything we wanted to hear and it gave us a huge indication that he had no plans on leaving the club.
There was also a lot of ‘YORKSHIRE, YORKSHIRE, YORKSHIRE’ messages as the pride of living in god’s country was on show.
Here is how some Leeds fans reacted to Bielsa’s comments.
At all these other big clubs discussing how they should sign up bielsa like they would be able to click their fingers and get him 🤣🤣🤣🤣 NAH the man is Yorkshire blood through and through. Leeds is his home 💛💙

Hopefully a contract announcement is coming in the near future though Bielsa did claim that he’ll wait until the end of the season to discuss his future.
