Leeds United fans had a lot to celebrate at the start of 2022. They secured a vital three points in downing Burnley, denting their survival hopes while boosting their own. Along with the huge win, the fans were overjoyed by what they saw from Marcelo Bielsa.

When Dan James scored in stoppage time, Bielsa embraced his technical staff, a moment that was captured and shared on Twitter.

It had been a nervous finish for the Leeds supporters and staff, having already been pegged back to 1-1 and probably worried the same could happen late on. James ensured it didn’t and the gaffer couldn’t hide his emotions.

Totally Leeds shared the image onto their page, and the fans were in love with the content.
