Marcelo Bielsa 'set to resign' as Leeds manager

Marcelo Bielsa is reportedly set to resign as Leeds manager in a shock announcement later this evening.

Sources close to the club claim that the Argentine tactician will reveal his decision at a hastily arranged press conference at 18:00 CET on Wednesday, where he will confirm his decision to step down.

Information given to Onefootball has indicated that the 63-year-old will walk away from the Elland Road club, despite them sitting at the top of the Championship.

It’s believed that Bielsa’s decision to resign is in part down to the reaction to the ‘Spygate’ scandal which saw a club employee questioned by Football League authorities for ‘spying’ on a Derby training session last week.
