Leeds Fan Calls For Club To Replace Marcelo Bielsa With Sam Allardyce

Leeds Fan Calls For Club To Replace Marcelo Bielsa With Sam Allardyce

A Leeds United fan rang up talkSPORT to tell Sam Allardyce that he wants him as manager.

Leeds currently lie in second place in the Championship on goal difference, four points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion following their 2-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday night.

And with fears that Marcelo Bielsa's side could bottle promotion for a second consecutive year, fan Danny wants the former England manager to come in and steady the ship.

Leeds Boss Marcelo Bielsa 'Lies Naked On Tables For 30 Minutes' After Defeats

You'll see in the replies to the tweet that the majority of fans think he's talking absolute nonsense, with many defending Bielsa and the job he's done as well as questioning the legitimacy of the bloke actually supporting Leeds.

Bielsa has got Leeds playing some of the most attractive and exciting football the Championship has ever seen and done so with a squad that isn't exactly filled with superstars.

But Allardyce, who has a polar opposite style of play, has previously been critical of Bielsa not having the silverware to match the philosophy he advocates.

"It sounds like to me everyone is talking about the style of play before results which is ludicrous," Allardyce said on talkSPORT in January.

"The brainwashing going on in this country is bizarre. It's results. Leeds haven't won anything.

"I watched them in the cup against Arsenal and certainly in the first half, they were very, very good and playing very, very well and they are missing one vital thing and that's a goalscorer. If they get that then they will be playing attractive football and winning promotion then you can say 'oh what a great job he has done'. "
