Sky expert reacts to Marcelo Bielsa rumors
Jermaine Beckford has said he will welcome Marcelo Bielsa back to Leeds United following the sacking of Jesse Marsch.
The former Leeds striker added Bielsa’s return would be “exciting” but he doesn’t think the club will go through with it again.
A number of Premier League jobs have become available of late, most recently at Everton who have opted for Sean Dyche.
Interestingly, there was talk of Bielsa replacing Frank Lampard at Goodison Park but in the end the Merseyside giants decided against it because of his outlandish demands.
Everton have proven what a new manager can do when the right man is put through the doors on paper.
Those in Yorkshire will be hoping the same ahead of a double-header against Manchester United in the Premier League, with Beckford sharing his thoughts on Bielsa, telling Sky Sports News (02/06/23).
“It’s possible (Bielsa replaces Marsch),” said Beckford. “Don’t upset me. Do not do that to me. It’s definitely possible.
“However, Marcelo Bielsa would have to change quite a bit and we all know what he did the first time. He was very intimidating in his approach. But he was all unforgiving. He didn’t take nonsense. He was ruthless and unrelenting in his pursuit of perfection.
“Nevertheless, we saw an extremely exciting style of football from Marcelo Bielsa, which we haven’t seen in Leeds for a long time. There were areas that could easily be exploited. We saw this up until his release.
“I’m a big fan of his. He managed to bring Premier League football back to Leeds after 16 extremely difficult years. Would I like to see him again? Absolutely. Do I think it would happen? I don’t believe.”
LEEDS SHOULD NOT BRING BIELSA BACK
Don’t go back to your ex. Those memories Bielsa made for Leeds fans are still full of sunshine and happiness.
You don’t want to ruin it by having that second phase go very wrong, such as B. a descent, and then those memories just get murky and murky.
As Leeds know only too well, Bielsa’s tactics and philosophy are something that just don’t suit a team in the middle of a season and struggling against relegation.
