MOT View: Leeds fans will surely be buzzing as Amazon share iconic Marcelo Bielsa clip
Marcelo Bielsa joined the celebrations after Leeds United secured promotion around this time one year ago.
Due to the lockdowns, the season was stopped mid-way with the Whites in touching distance of promotion.
Once football resumed, Leeds picked up from where they left and ensured that they secured promotion and won the Championship.
The clip shared by Amazon shows how much the victory meant to the Argentine.
Usually known to be camera shy and introverted, this was a side to Bielsa that Leeds United fans had probably never seen before.
What a journey
Who would’ve thought that we would be where we are when Bielsa walked through the door but look at us now.
It’s been a concerted effort from the owners, board members, coaching staff, players and the Argentine himself to get us to the promised land and we’re showing no signs of slowing down.
Until the final few weeks last season, we had chances to qualify for Europe – something none of us would’ve thought possible in our first year back up.
A number of Leeds fans would’ve taken 40 points and wanted the club to build on it in the future, but with 59 points, we’ve truly been spoilt by this team.
This transfer window is a significant one and we’ve taken the first step in the right direction to strengthen the squad.
Roping in Junior Firpo from Barcelona gives us a solid attacking option at left-back, but we need a midfielder and winger to ensure we finish top eight next year.
Signing Jack Harrison on a permanent deal was another good move by Victor Orta and he’s proven himself to be as committed to his project as Bielsa.
Our season begins on August 14 and we cannot wait for the action to unfold in front of a packed Elland Road crowd.
