admitting that he is planning for a life-long comitmment to the

Premier League


Since the Argentine is used to signing year-to-year contracts with the Peacocks, many fans have started to fear that the 65-year-old will soon be leaving the club, but Bielsa assured that this is not what he has in mind.

He said:

"I always think that I'm going to stay forever in all the jobs that I take and I go from day to day thinking I'm going to be here the rest of my life.”

“At the same time, it's a profession that usually has interruptions. it is far more common that a manager is fired than he stays in the same place for a long time.”

If Bielsa was granted another year extension, it would his fourth season in charge of the Leeds, which will mark one of his longest coaching spells after his time as


boss between 1998 and 2004.

Earlier in February, Bielsa revealed that he won’t be giving any confirmation about his future before the end of the season unless the club requested him to do so.
