Turns out it wasn’t just the press and the fans that were blown away by Marcelo Bielsa.
Cooper on Bielsa: "You know from the interview yesterday, as soon as he speaks to you he has you enticed. What a chance to show yourself in front of one of the best managers in the world. The lads bought into it from day one." #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) January 17, 2019
Leeds captain Liam Cooper said that all of the players were immediately impressed by Bielsa, with all of them wanting to play for Bielsa and all of them wanting to play even harder to get him to have faith in them. Benjamin Mendy said that he ‘missed Bielsa hugs’ after the video emerged of Patrick Bamford’s wonder-goal from training a few weeks ago. Players seem to love playing for Bielsa, and he seems to get a lot more out of players than anyone else seems to be able to do. He really is a genius, isn’t he?
