Bielsa has had a huge effect on Leeds. Promotion back to the Premier League was almost achieved in his first season, only for Leeds to get pipped to second place by Sheffield United.
Leeds went on to suffer play-off heartache but that just set the scene for a glorious second season that not even COVID could derail.
Leeds went on to win the Championship at a canter, with the lack of fans there to see it the only blot on the campaign.
Bielsa’s assault on the Premier League has left pundits breathless and taken fans on a rollercoaster ride, and we’re not even halfway through the season yet.
But it’s not just on the pitch that Bielsa’s influence can be seen. He’s a holistic manager who has improved Leeds in almost every area, from Thorp Arch to Elland Road.
We can’t wait for the book – and neither can these fans…
