Well, it always seems like Marcelo Bielsa remembers who the important people are in football. And no, it’s not the guys in suits at the EFL headquarters.

Bielsa, humble as ever, says that the Leeds United fans are there to see the the manager of the team, not specifically him. Of course everyone was there to get his autograph because he’s the manager of Leeds, but no one ever lined up to get Thomas Christiansen or Paul Heckingbottom’s autograph or picture, did they?

Everything about this season has been special, and let’s hope that the next 14 games are just as special.
