Fri 21 May 2021 | 11:31

The 65-year-old Argentinian revealed that he and the club are in talks to extend their contract but no announcement will be made before their final Premier League game against West Brom.

"

I can't not say I have revised with the authorities of the club all the variables that means to carry on,"

Bielsa has told

SkySports

.

"But like I say, I prefer for the season to finish and take the decision of all the elements of judgement on the table."

Bielsa is in his third season at Elland Road, but his contracts with the club go from season to season.

"

The evaluation of the continuity of a manager is such a delicate decision

," Bielsa said.

"Any argument should be considered. There's no better argument than every game of football. When all the games are completed, it's the moment to do an evaluation."

Bielsa added: "

I want to protect myself from the effect of not giving a response when the surroundings would like it

.

"I am not considering any alternative option. I am being sincere, I do not have alternative options."

Leeds, who have been promoted to the Premier League this season, have achieved good results and are ranked 10th in the table. Bielsa's men will face West Brom in the final game of the season, which have been relegated to the Championship.
