Leeds captain Liam Cooper is thrilled that Marcelo Bielsa is back for another year at the helm of the club.
| "It’s a really exciting time to be involved" #LUFC captain Liam Cooper expresses his delight at Marcelo Bielsa extending his stay with the club— Leeds United (@LUFC) May 28, 2019
Cooper told the club’s official website:
It is great to see the club exercise the option for Marcelo to stay with us next year. Along with Andrea, Victor and Angus he is helping to create a new culture at Leeds and it’s a really exciting time to be involved as a player.
It has been a bitterly disappointing end to the campaign for everyone at the club, but this news allows us to focus on the next year - we have continuity for the first time in my career at Leeds and we will all now be focused on returning to pre-season and working hard to achieve our ultimate goal together.
How long has it been since Leeds fans were excited about the next season? How long has it been since the fans at Leeds were glad to see the manager is back for another year? This past year has been grand, and so here’s hoping it can only get better.
