Leeds Manager Marcelo Bielsa Hands Out Sweets To Kids Waiting For Team Bus

Leeds Manager Marcelo Bielsa Hands Out Sweets To Kids Waiting For Team Bus

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa could be forgiven for feeling a tad nervous ahead of this afternoon's crunch Championship clash against Sheffield United.

Many are calling it their biggest game of the season to date, so how does Bielsa react to such pressure?

He gives out a load of sweets to fans who waited to greet the players on this freezing cold day in March.

The 63-year-old was the last to leave the team bus ahead of the 12:30 kick-off at Elland Road and to the surprise of many young supporters, the Argentinian went to his pocket and handed out the sugary goods.

You've got to applaud Bielsa's gesture here. Fair play.

If Leeds manage to secure all three points against third place Sheffield United today, then they will climb to the top of the Championship ladder for the time being.

Norwich travel to relegation contenders Rotherham in a crucial 3pm kick-off.

But can Daniel Farke's side regain their two point lead at the top of the table?

All we know is, Bielsa has been somewhat of a revelation since taking the Leeds job in June last year.

It has been a promising campaign for the club and Bielsa's methods are undoubtably a huge reason behind the club's success this season.

But a recent report might just be of concern to Leeds fans. The Mirror claim that Everton could swoop for Bielsa in the near future, with the former Marseille and Lazio manager being "highly regarded" by the Premier League side.

The 63-year-old would be seen as a replacement for current boss Marco Silva, who has struggled to make his mark on The Toffees since taking over last year.

Do you think Bielsa will remain at Leeds next season?

Let us know in the comments.
