It was Marcelo Bielsa’s 64th birthday recently. To celebrate, the Leeds Twitter account tweeted a happy birthday message for their head coach.

The Argentine joined Leeds a year ago and has completely changed the Yorkshire club. By taking a squad that finished 13th the year before to a 3rd place finish, Bielsa quickly earned the adoration of the Elland Road faithful.

The maverick manager has won 53% of his matches in charge of Leeds, taking them back into contention for the Championship title last season. With the renewal of his contract this summer, Bielsa will be in charge of The Whites promotion push for next season at least.

Many Leeds fans were quick to wish their “god” a happy birthday. While some Whites fans used it as an opportunity to poke fun at the club’s transfer business this summer, saying that the club should look to sign a centre back and a striker as a birthday present for “El Loco’.

Here is the best of the reaction.
