So yeah, Marcelo Bielsa may have calmed down a little bit, seeing as he hasn’t shown up to a Leeds match with a hand grenade and all that, but he’s still a bit loco.
Wow. "Yes, he is crazy" report @DiarioOle who say that Marcelo Bielsa donated $2.5million towards the cost of the new Hotel Jorge Griffa which is due to open next month at Bella Vista, the training ground of #Newells. https://t.co/5YR4f3TAPU— Newell's Old Boys - English (@Newells_en) October 14, 2018
A report from the press in Argentina says that Bielsa has donated $2.5 million towards the building of a hotel by the training ground of his former club Newell’s Old Boys.
It’s rare to see the kind of relationship that Newell’s Old Boys and Bielsa have, but then again, how many other managers have stadiums named after them?
