Leeds United: Marcelo Bielsa signs two-year contract to become new manager

Ex-Argentina coach Marcelo Bielsa has become the new manager of Leeds United. The club opened talks with Bielsa shortly after sacking Paul Heckingbottom on 1 June and the 62-year-old has agreed a two-year contract with an option for a third year. Bielsa has previously managed clubs in his native Argentina, Spain and France, as well as Chile’s national side. It will be the fifth successive season that Leeds have started a campaign with a new manager. "It has always been my ambition to work in England and I have had several opportunities to do so during my career, however I have always felt it was important to wait for the right project to come along and so when a club with Leeds United’s history made me an offer, it was impossible to turn down," Bielsa said in a statement.
