Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani admits he is uncertain how long Marcelo Bielsa will remain in charge at Elland Road. Bielsa’s current contract expires at the end of the season, with the Argentine having locked offers one year to the beginning of each of his three seasons with whites. And while Radrizzani is keen to Bielsa to stay after he guided the back of the club in the Premier League last season, which is unable to provide any guarantee.
“I have no doubt Marcelo is the right person to Leeds coach. I would like to continue the cycle with him, but I’m not naive either,” he told La Nacion.
“On the one hand, Marcelo is very demanding. For me, that’s not a problem and neither is for players who accept their work culture and see the benefits.
“On the other hand, Marcelo is no longer young. He is 65 years old and his family is often in Argentina. So I do not know if he wants to stay and for how long. We analyze each year and decided together.
“Obviously, our preference is as follows. If that is not possible, we will surely other options in mind, but so far we have not considered these options, as we believe and we hope to continue the service.”
