Marcelo Bielsa ‘not worried’ about Leeds future with contract extension expected

Marcelo Bielsa has insisted he is not worried about his career at Leeds United despite a contract extension yet to be negotiated.

Regardless, the 65-year-old expects to be handed a new deal.

It follows a brilliant few years at Elland Road, where he has successfully guided the club back to the Premier League.

Leeds are back in the top tier after 16 years and countless managers.

And they are not being quiet, either, with every game seemingly a rollercoaster of emotions.

Their last four Premier League matches sum it up perfectly – two wins, two defeats – beating Leicester and Crystal Palace while losing to Everton and Arsenal.

However, relegation has not crossed anyone's mind at the club and instead they are gunning to finish in the top 10.

It means that their sights can turn to the summer with no fears over their Premier League status – a huge bonus in the transfer window.

But bringing in players is not so much the concern right now as there is over Bielsa, whose contract will expire at the end of the season.

The former Argentine manager took over in 2018 and has overseen major changes at the club.

Losing him would be a huge blow to their aims next season due to the strides made under his stewardship.
