Bielsa = Leeds

113 pages. eBook only.

Publisher description: "In June 2018, Leeds United had just completed another uninspiring campaign in the Second Tier of English Football. In the last 14 years, the club had suffered Financial Meltdown, subsequent points deduction and Relegation to the Third Tier, a brief renaissance when they returned to the Championship and a succession of uninspiring owners. Andrea Radrizzani, the current owner was cut from a different cloth. Both Andrea and Director of Football Victor Orta somehow managed to persuade the legendary Argentine Coach Marcelo Bielsa to come to the club.

Bielsa swept through the Yorkshire Club like a hurricane. In less than two months he changed the infrastructure from bottom to top and introduced his punishing but successful coaching methods. Here was a man who was modest and respectful but supremely confident in his own ability. The people of Leeds took him to their hearts, especially as his team led the league for most of the season. This was achieved with a small squad augmented with young players from the Academy who had to step up when the Club suffered from an unprecedented and horrendous injury list. Very few players had been added to the squad that had finished 13th the previous season. In the end the team narrowly missed promotion, crashing out in the Play Off Semi Finals but the club enjoyed their best season for many years. This is the story from the perspective of an ordinary fan who believes that whatever happens next, Leeds United has been changed for the better permanently."
