These Leeds fans react as Gerrard linked as possible Bielsa successor

Steven Gerrard has been doing a great job at Rangers, his first managerial post since he left the Liverpool youth set-up.

Rangers are currently top of the Premiership and there’s a feeling that Gerrard is destined for the big job at Anfield when Jurgen Klopp leaves. The German’s contract is up in June 2022 and Klopp has already hinted that he will leave Liverpool then.

However, a report from Football Insider has linked Leeds with Gerrard when Marcelo Bielsa leaves the club.

From the outside, you might think that Leeds fans would be pleased to be linked with a young, progressive name like Gerrard.

However, things have changed since Bielsa took over. He’s brought a new philosophy to the club and there’s a real synergy between him and Carlos Corberan, the manager of the Under-23s.

So much so that plenty of Leeds fans want Corberan to be Bielsa’s successor – although the hope is that Bielsa will be managing Leeds next season in the Premier League.

Rangers fans won’t want Gerrard to leave so they’re unlikely to take offence at these reactions from Leeds fans.
