Manchester United have been urged to consider Marcelo Bielsa as the club’s next manager. Bielsa’s contract at Leeds United expires at the end of this season. The Argentine claimed last week that now is not the time to discuss an extension.
Bielsa led Leeds back to the promised land of the Premier League in 2020, 16 years after their relegation from the top flight.
His coaching methods have earned huge admiration and praise from the likes of Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino.
United are on the search for a permanent manager for when Ralf Rangnick’s interim spell in charge comes to an end.
Pochettino and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag are two of the top targets for the Old Trafford club.

“Think of Leeds before Bielsa walked through the door and look where they are now.
“Are they ever going to compete with Man City, Liverpool, Manchester United, clubs that spend huge amounts of money on wages? No he’s not but he produces very, very effective teams.
“He’s done it in a very different way in many different places and in different countries.”
