A new life-long Leeds United fan was made away at Derby County Saturday.
Do you see the smile on the face of the guy wearing the Newell’s Old Boys shirt while he’s shaking Marcelo Bielsa’s hand?

Hello! I am the happy guy in the picture shaking hands with Marcelo!! I am Argentinian, recently moved to Derby and couldn't miss the change to go and meet this legend— Diego Lopez (@LpzDie) August 12, 2018
Diego Lopez, from what he said on Twitter, moved to Derby and couldn’t pass up the chance to meet Bielsa, and really, who can blame him? It’s not every day you get a chance to meet someone that has a stadium named after him.
And, yes, he’s Leeds now.
On to the links.
