Many Leeds United fans have flocked to a comment about Marcelo Bielsa from Liam Cooper that recently emerged.
The Telegraph recently interviewed Cooper about his spell at Leeds and his time under Bielsa. The defender credited the Leeds boss for changing his life and he made it clear that he’s very confident about the Argentine’s stay at Elland Road.
He also said that all Leeds players want him to stay as well, as Bielsa loves the club, the city and the people.
Are you confident about Bielsa's stay?
This comment from the defender was relayed on Twitter by Leeds United News. Many Whites fans were buzzing about it.
What did Leeds fans make of Cooper’s comment about Bielsa?
“I love Bielsa & would be over the moon for him to stay much longer, but he’s an amazing human being. He’s worked miracles but I worry about how staying here will affect his family life. Can we not just buy them a nice farm in the Yorkshire Dales so they can be happy together?“
In the interview, Cooper claimed Bielsa was ‘different class’ and has taken the players’ game to the next level. He stated that the Argentine hasn’t just changed his life as a player, but also as a man and he’s now enjoying his life. He credited Bielsa for that too.
The Scotsman also stated that while he used to be upbeat about winning earlier, he’s learned from Bielsa that he must not get too high after a win too.
“Just give the man the key to the city already.”
“This would be brilliant.“
“There’s no way he’d say that so emphatically unless he knew the crack already. Bielsa is signing, it’s nailed on.”
A lot of these Leeds fans are buzzing about Cooper’s comment about Bielsa and they seem to be enjoying the Argentine’s stay at Elland Road.
The Whites are level on points with ninth-placed Arsenal in their first season back in the top flight and it shows the work that Bielsa has done at the club.
He’s done that while getting the team to play attacking football, as they have the fifth-best xG metric in the division. So it is easy to see why Leeds fans are still happy with Bielsa and want him to stay.
