Marcelo Bielsa’s team have led the top-flight by storm, earning plenty of plaudits along the way. Liverpool have matched stride step on the first weekend of the season, Leeds and then took a point of Manchester City, with two wins sandwiched in between.
While taking the time to be officially announced, there was little panic that the man behind meteoric Leeds, Bielsa, would not lead to the 2020/21 season. After being persuaded to end his work directing the back of the club in the Premier League, after losing in the promotion in his first season, Bielsa was unlikely to leave without a crack in the Premier League.
Which it is demonstrated by the fact after just over two years at Elland Road, Bielsa has to take care of eight more games to Leeds being the longest held a single job. According to our calculations, that means if Bielsa remains on the bench on December 12, against West Ham United, the targets will be the club he has served the longest of his career, for club or country.
