Leeds United Are Back In The Premier League After A 16 Year Wait

Leeds United Are Back In The Premier League After A 16 Year Wait

Leeds United will be playing Premier League football again next season after finally sealing promotion back to the big time.

The Whites have gone 16 years without playing in the top flight following their relegation in 2003/04 and even sunk as low as League One after a monumental decline.

But having missed out last year when they dropped off massively in the latter stages of the season,Marcelo Bielsa has achieved promotion with the Elland Road outfit at the second time of asking after amassing a club-record 87 points from 44 games.

Following Leeds' narrow 1-0 win over Yorkshire rivals Barnsley that left them on the brink on Thursday night, West Brom slipped to a 2-1 defeat away at Huddersfield - meaning a sleeping giant has well and truly awoken again.

The club's last Premier League game was a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in 2004 and since then, they have watched 28 different clubs achieve promotion to the top tier.

In that period, they've played 734 games in the Football League, used a total of 268 players and had 15 different permanent managers.

But was the current boss, the colourful character that is Bielsa, who succeed in guiding Leeds back to where they belong.

And the thought of the enigmatic Argentine managing in the Premier League, with the exciting brand of football he plays - coupled with the Leeds fans roaring the team on, is incredibly exciting.
