Since arriving at the Yorkshire side in 2018 the Argentine has used a translator during his interviews in a similar fashion to which Mauricio Pochettino did when he arrived at Southampton.

However, the video showed Bielsa speaking English in his latest press conference ahead of their clash on Monday night against Liverpool.

In response to one of the journalists not realising he was on mute during the video press conference, Bielsa burst out laughing and replied:

Bielsa has his Leeds side currently in the top half of the Premier League table in what is their first season back in the English top flight since their relegation in 2004.

Going by the reaction of some of these Leeds fans it would appear they are extremely happy with their current position in the Premier League and will be hoping the club is able to extend Bielsa’s contract, which is set to expire at the end of this season.
