Leeds United have given a one year contract extension to their manager Marcelo Bielsa after a good stint in the 2018-19 Championship campaign.

Despite failing to qualify for the Premier League the Argentine has impressed with his fantastic management skills at the club.

The contract extension of Bielsa was celebrated by the fans and marketed well by the club as the news was displayed across big screens in West Yorkshire with the tagline “Leeds United. We go again!”

The former Marseille coach became the highest paid manager in the Championship last year after his appointment at the club earning an estimated amount of £2m per year.

He took over a weak Leeds side in June last year that had finished 13th in the Championship under Paul Heckingbottom. 

Bielsa impressed with a 3rd place finish in his first campaign in England. Leeds United President Andrea Radrizzani decided to pen down a one year extension for Marcelo’s contract claiming that the manager has ‘unfinished business’ with the club and wants to ‘have another go’.

“Let’s have another go,” Radrizzani said. “I am delighted Marcelo has agreed to stay for another year – we have unfinished business. We were close and next season we will work harder to achieve our goal.”

Bielsa collected a total of 83 points for the Whites in the 2018-19 season recording the highest points since their promotion from League One in the 2009-10 season.

The former Bilbao manager is a popular figure amongst the fans and has been handed another chance to practice his brand of football at the club.
