How Marcelo Bielsa Transformed Leeds United!

► SUBSCRIBE to FOOTBALL DAILY: http://bit.ly/fdsubscribe

This is Everything You Need To Know, the series where we give you the story behind some of football’s defining moments. Today we are looking at the return of Leeds United to the Premier League, following a chequered history that saw them almost collapse in 2007.

We break down what actually happened 16 years ago, and how financial difficulties saw them fall into the Championship and League One, from where they struggled to return.

The arrival of new Italian ownership in 2013 bought with it the promise of success, but we look at how it wasn’t until Marcelo Bielsa arrived in 2018 that hope once again gripped the famous old West Yorkshire club.

We look at the Argentines unique tactics, and how he has got the best out of the squad he was given, including the brilliant Jack Harrison and Kalvin Philips.

Leeds United are a Premier League club again, and here is how that happened!

Bielsa is unarguably, one of the greatest managers of all time. He might've not won many trophies, but he has inspired countless other managers, and his tactics are among the best in the game

3:25 he resigned being lazio manager because he asked the president to sign players for his project they said yes and then they said NO. So bielsa quit because he is a real leader he wanted a project well made lazio did not wantto listen to his requests so he went to a club that would let him be the leader and display his football leeds player are humble and follow his lead that's why got promoted

Great to see Leeds are gonna be back in the prem again. Looking forward to seeing Bielsa in the transfer market as well as lauding at his tactical approach on the top level touchline. Uphill battle for them, but as a neutral, I can't wait to see what happens

I'm an American teen who started watching the Premier League since the 2015-2016 season and it was Leicester's second season after being promoted from the championship. I was new to the teams but seeing a team like Leicester survive and dominate in a league of top teams after the hardest season for a team that has been promoted a season previously, they became underdogs and went on to win the league and has been my team to watch and cheer for. Everything about Leeds United from their stats in the championship show they could be like Leicester was. They could potentially make it on the top half of the table like Sheffield next season or if many of there players do leave, they will become Norwich who clinched first place in the championship and entered the premier league to be relegated back again. Whatever happens, congrats Leeds, can't wait to see y'all in the top flight.

Muchos argentinos, los que queremos a Bielsa al menos, pendientes de que el Leeds vuelva a donde pertenece, para volver a ganar lo que malas gestiones le quitaron! Ojala El Loco siga en su cargo para hacer que el Leeds recupere su mistica.... Leeds fans, top tier of support in the world.

What a great story! I'm happy for both Leeds United and Marcelo Bielsa. As a kid growing up in London during the 1970s, I couldn't stand Leeds United. But I respected them as a great team. I remember the great Leeds team of Don Revie and their battles with Arsenal and Chelsea. The Premiership will be even more interesting to watch having Leeds back. I hope Bielsa leads them to some important trophies - until I start hating them again!

I was also a teenage Yank living in England during the early 70s but was and still am a hardcore Arsenal supporter. However, Leeds was the club I always feared, especially given the great Don Revie team of the era with Lorimer , Clarke, Bremner, Giles, Charlton, etc. Perhaps a bit weak at goalkeeper but what a squad. Welcome back to the top flight where you belong. I also don't care about any of our home grown sports over here! Cheers

Also, his time at Lille wasn't a disaster at all - they ended up making a lot of money off the players he brought in/through.
