A lot of Leeds United fans have flocked to a post from their club that confirmed that Marcelo Bielsa has been named as one of the finalists in FIFA’s Best Men’s Coach of the Year award for 2020.
The Argentine, along with Jurgen Klopp and Hansi Flick, has made the final and this news has drawn in many Leeds fans, who are delighted.
What did these Leeds fans think of this news regarding Marcelo Bielsa?

Do you think Bielsa deserves this nomination?
Bielsa’s inclusion on the shortlist last month sparked some controversy, with a few people claiming that Dean Smith and Frank Lampard could have been nominated, so we are not sure what the reaction is going to be now that Bielsa has made the final.
Many Leeds fans are clearly expecting some good responses from rival fans.

Others have taken this time to mock Smith and Lampard.
Shocked to see Dean Smith didn’t make the final three. And Frank Lampard ????

Still can’t believe Dean Smith wasn’t on the short list! …. disgrace

Bielsa is up against some stiff competition, with Flick leading Bayern Munich to the UEFA Champions League title, the Bundesliga title, and the German Cup, while Klopp led Liverpool to the Premier League title.
However, Bielsa led Leeds back to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years and has them eight points clear of the relegation zone after 11 games, so he has done a brilliant job, and we feel he deserves to have made the final.
