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.
“I think Bielsa will draw a line under it if they don’t go up this season.”
“If they go up, he will stay.” ????

The radio host may well be right with his prediction.
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.
