The arrival of Marcelo Bielsa has boosted Leeds United and seen the Lily-Whites drastically improve on the pitch.
They managed to blow a huge lead at the top of the Championship last season and failed to gain promotion.
But that setback laid the foundation for this season and once again, Bielsa’s Leeds have been a dominant force.
They were at the top of the table before the pandemic caused the suspension of football.
While there is uncertainty over the status of the season, the authorities are bent on completing the season.
As a result, there is hope for Leeds in terms of promotion back to the top flight.
In the hope of promotion, they have begun preparations for the upcoming season in the Premier League.
Leeds were rumored to have signed a new kit deal with sportswear giants Adidas.
There has been no official confirmation from the club regarding the deal but that might change soon if the fans are to be believed.
A Leeds fan bumped into Marcelo Bielsa today and managed to grab a selfie with the manager, while adhering to the social distancing norms.
