Leeds United fans have reacted with anticipation on Twitter to the first pictures of new manager Marcelo Bielsa at the club’s headquarters.
Images broadcast by Sky Sports news on Monday morning showed Bielsa strolling around the Yorkshire club’s Thorp Arch training headquarters with owner Andrea Radrizzani, director of football Victor Orta and managing director Angus Kinnear.
These were quickly shared on social media by supporters and journalists amid growing excitement at the Argentine’s first press conference later today since being appointed the new manager.

The Argentine has arrived at Leeds for the first time since he was unveiled as the new manager on 15 June following the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom at the start of the month.
It is an appointment that has been met with universally warm and positive verdicts from United fans desperate for their club to end a 14-year spell in the lower league.
Supporters took to social media en masse to react to the first images of Bielsa, with comments including “it’s real, it’s happening” and “I love it”.
