Leeds United fans have been reacting to comments made by Marcelo Bielsa on what is a landmark day for him.
Today marks 1,000 days since the Argentinian was appointed as head coach of Leeds United. From the Spygate affair and the collapse against Derby County in his first season, to finally being able to celebrate promotion in his second, it has certainly been an incredible story, and it looks as if Bielsa wants it to continue for quite some time.
He was speaking in his press conference (via @LUFC) ahead of their game with Chelsea this weekend, but he took some time to talk about what it means to him to have reached such a milestone, saying: “I go from day to day thinking I’m going to be here for the rest of my life.”
These words sparked the Leeds United fans on social media into life, who were overjoyed to hear his level of commitment to the club:
“Keep Marcelo Bielsa safe and warm. Make sure he is clothed and bathed and fed. Sing to him and read him stories. He is a bébé”
Is Bielsa overhyped?
So looks like it’s a case of ‘here’s to the next 1,000 days’, but how many more days after that we’ll just have to wait and see.
