Take Us Home: Leeds United, which tells the story of the club’s first season under manager Marcelo Bielsa, was premiered in Leeds on Wednesday night before its launch on Amazon Prime Video on Friday.

The Whites’ promotion challenge was halted by Derby in the Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-finals after a poor run-in saw them fail to secure a top-two finish.

In a similar format to the recent docu-series which followed Manchester City and Sunderland, Take Us Home: Leeds United takes a behind-the-scenes look at the club under ambitious owner Andrea Radrizzani and their bid to end their Premier League exile.

The series tells briefly of Leeds’ turbulent recent past and their spectacular fall from the Champions League to the third tier of English football.

It chronicles their bold plan to lure former Argentina and Chile boss Bielsa to Yorkshire and provides fly-on-the-wall insight into how the obsessive South American has set about transforming the club on and off the pitch.

The documentary ultimately ends in heartbreak as Leeds came unstuck against Derby, but Cooper hopes a possible second series will have a happy ending.

“Let’s hope series two ends a lot better than the first one,” – said club captain Liam Cooper, who was joined by team-mates and guests at the red carpet event.

The docu-series, narrated by actor and Leeds fan Russell Crowe, is produced for Prime Video by Eleven Studios in partnership with The City Talking.
