Leeds United fans take out newspaper spread for Marcelo Bielsa yet again
A group of Scandinavian Leeds United fans have created a newspaper spread to honour ex-Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa, as he arrives in Oslo for a national coaching seminar.
The 67-year-old manager guided Leeds back to the Premier League after a 16-year absence, and a set of dedicated fans have shown their love for the Argentine by creating a spread which includes greetings from fans all over the world.
The coach is taking part in a national coaching seminar in Oslo and has arranged a program to meet 100 local Leeds fans on Friday 25 November, as announced on the LUSCOS Twitter account.
The tweet said: “Scandinavian Leeds fans are not like everyone else. But Marcelo Bielsa is no ordinary football coach either.
“Tomorrow [November 25], there will be large advertisements in the national newspapers Dagbladet and Klassekampen to show that our love, respect and gratitude are endless.”
The Athletic’s Phil Hay has also retweeted a video which included the ex-Leeds manager explaining his trade to an on-watching crowd on Thursday, November 24.
The Tweet said: “Bielsa at cup final seminar, four hours session, some humour occasionally”
If Bielsa’s stock could have risen anymore within the Leeds faithful’s minds, then it just has with this recent development.
The Argentine is never afraid to share his trade and explain how he made it to the top of footballing management, with these lucky fans able to hear the legend speak in person.
Although he left the club on ever-so-slightly frosty terms, absence always makes the heart grow fonder – and Leeds fans can never look on Bielsa unfavourably.
The years when the 67-year-old was at the club were some of the best in decades, with a purposeful, energetic and entertaining brand of football becoming a staple Elland Road present to fans on a weekly basis.
Now that he has moved on, Leeds fans’ admiration for the manager is being shown in many different ways, with this poster displaying just how far the reach of Leeds United Football Club really is.
