Leeds United fans on Twitter have been reacting to the suggestion that Jose Mourinho should replace Marcelo Bielsa as the manager of Leeds United.
The caller clearly wasn’t happy that a football brain such as Mourinho’s wasn’t being utilised to its full potential, and he called for him to take a job in the Championship.
Of course, Leeds already have a high profile manager in charge in the shape of Bielsa.
It’s a testament to the talents of Bielsa that a number of Leeds fans scoffed at the idea of a two-time Champions League winner replacing him.
Some supporters couldn’t actually believe what they were hearing, and they thought that the caller must have been playing a joke to have suggested swapping Bielsa for Mourinho.
This guy has to be a troll.

Others claimed that Bielsa was the superior manager and that the work he has done on such a shoestring budget would be impossible for Mourinho to top.
We have the ‘Special One’ already at ER we don’t need a showboating manager who only wins when big money is spent and who generally looses the dressing room by his third year in charge. Bielsa should be feted for what he achieved last year with a side that only got to mid table.

Ridiculous! Bielsa has been magnificent for Leeds. Changed the culture, transformed an ordinary team into one of the most exciting I’ve watched in 45 years and he’s not spent huge money doing it! Mourinho needs huge money, it’s not attractive football and teams implode!

Another section of the fanbase went as far as to say that they wouldn’t swap Bielsa for anyone. One fan stated that he wouldn’t even want Guardiola in his place.
Genuinely wouldn’t swap Bielsa for anyone in world football.
