Leeds are sitting pretty in second in the Championship on 42 points from their 21 games played.

Importantly, Bielsa has brought the fans back together at Elland Road after years of uncertainty under previous owner Massimo Cellino.


However since Andrea Radrizzani took over and employed Bielsa, the Whites could finally end their 14-year hiatus from the Premier League.

As well as Bielsa, Boca Juniors boss Guillermo Barros Schelotto is also on the shortlist for the job at Atlanta.
