TalkSPORT’s Adrian Durham has stuck his neck out and made a bold prediction about Marcelo Bielsa’s future at Leeds United.

After the end of last season, there was a lot of speculation around the Argentine’s future at the club.

It was uncertain whether or not he would remain at Elland Road for a second season, but he ended up agreeing to stay on for another year.

Despite this, Durham believes that failure to earn promotion with the Whites this season will spell the end for El Loco at Elland Road.

The radio host may well be right with his prediction.

Bielsa has never been one to stick around in a job for too long. He left Marseille after just 12 months, he left Lille after four months and at Lazio he didn’t even last three days.

The 64-year-old has previously been touted as the best coach in the world by Pep Guardiola, so you could understand if he didn’t want to spend a third year managing in the Championship.

It remains to be seen whether or not Leeds go up this season, but after their unbeaten start, they’re in a great position to finally get the job done.
