Leeds Fan Shows Off Unbelievable Marcelo Bielsa Tattoo
One fanatical Leeds United supporter has etched Marcelo Bielsa's Spygate story in ink in an unbelievable way. The unnamed supporter has incredibly had the Yorkshire boss tattooed on his forearm, in a true homage football's very own James Bond.
Bielsa's undercover revelations surfaced after he was caught sending a member of his analysis team to watch Derby County train ahead of their Championship clash.
Since then, the meticulous Argentine shocked everyone when he called a press meeting to reveal the surprising detail of his match preparation. Graeme Bandeira illustrated the affair as part of his Yorkshire Post cartoon feature - and this fan went one hilarious step further. See for yourself below:

Spygate has taken football social media by storm this past week. Even Pizza Hut got in on the action with a ruthless exchange of banter between themselves and Leeds United on Twitter.
Hi @LUFC, we've just seen a suspicious looking man peering through our chef's window. Can you let us know if you're planning to put Pizza on the menu in the club canteen?- Pizza Hut Restaurants (@pizzahutuk) January 17, 2019

All 'bants' aside, Leeds United are enjoying a successful season so far under the Argentine's stewardship. They're currently top of the table, despite losing 2-1 to Stoke yesterday.
El Loco, as he's known in the Yorkshire city, has received a mixed reception towards his methods. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola publicly praised the Leeds boss in a press conference.
But unfortunately for Bielsa, no matter how much data you collect, how many minutes you watch of your opponents and how many spies you send to Championship training grounds, nothing can prepare you for a cold and rainy Saturday away in Stoke-on-Trent.
If you could get one piece of football drama immortalised in ink, which would it be? Let us know in the comments below.
