Marcelo Bielsa or El Loco as he is fondly called is the epitome of what a football fanatic is. He lives and breathes football with every breath and his tactical play and exciting brand of football have made Leeds United one of the most riveting teams to come up to the first division this season.
While their other compatriots West Brom and Fulham who also made their way to the top tier of English football this year are struggling at the bottom of the table and are fighting a relegation battle.

Marcelo Bielsa has drilled these players to give it their all and his extensive work can be shown on the field. This Leeds United team is a treat to watch even for all those neutral spectators out there as one is guaranteed a barrage of goals whether it is Leeds or the opposition. They have been known to go toe to toe with the biggest boys of the league.
