WATCH: Leeds fans celebrate promotion with coach Bielsa at his house

July 17, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The Argentine tactician is a beloved figure among Leeds' supporters, and he shared a moment with them after their promotion was confirmed.

After 16 years away from the spotlight, Leeds United will go back to the Premier League. The historic team will return to the English top-flight thanks to Marcelo Bielsa's guidance, and fans were sure to let the boss know how thankful they are of his impressive work.

Bielsa became a fan-favorite even after an alleged spying scandal last season, but during this campaign, the tactician did not need that sort of antics to lead the club to a first-place finish in the Championship to earn the promotion.

With two games left, and following West Brom's 2-1 loss to Huddersfield earlier today, Leeds' promotion in first place was secured. Fans decided to celebrate with the boss, and in quite a curious gesture, they decided to wait for the coach at his home to congratulate him.

A happy Bielsa descended from his car and greeted fans close to him with an elbow salute, and even if he wanted to say more, his poor English-speaking skills left fans with a short but heartfelt message by the former Argentina boss.

Have a look at the moment caught by one fan with his smartphone.

Leeds United will play their two remaining games against Derby (away) and Charlton (at home) before making their return to the Premier League for the 2020-21 season.
