Leeds United: Jean-Kevin Augustin message to Marcelo Bielsa after sacking

Leeds United parted ways with Marcelo Bielsa after a string of horrible defeats left them as one of the favourites to go down this season when looking at the table.

He was at the club for over three years, guiding them back to the Premier League after a 16 year absence at the top table in English football. His first season there was a roaring success, finishing ninth in the league. His side secured the highest points tally for a newly promoted side since the 2000/01 season.

Do you expect Raphinha to be at Leeds next season?





As per usual, the Leeds United players  took to social media to post their condolences and messages of support for their now former boss, with ex-Whites outcast Jean-Kevin Augustin posting this on his Twitter:

A lovely message from the former White who was never really fancied at Elland Road by Bielsa himself, only appearing three times. The contract woes off the field between Leeds and RB Leipzig overshadowed the player and his time at Elland Road.

This was a low point in Leeds United's history, but how many points did they get in the 2003/04 campaign?

Given the nature of his time there too, it’s a touch of class from the Frenchman and it shows what he thinks of the Argentine boss. It would be easy to just say nothing so it shows what an impact Bielsa had on Augustin in his short stint in Yorkshire.

It looks like Jesse Marsch is set to take over, with Leeds looking to salvage their season before it’s too late.
