Leeds United announced Bielsa's axe

The Argentine manager has had poor results in recent weeks, which eventually led to his dismissal.

Leeds United

have announced that they have cut ties with manager Marcelo Bielsa following their defeat to



Leeds United lost 4-0 to Tottenham last night and before that they lost 4-2 to United and 6-0 to


and are trying to avoid relegation. Leeds have not won their last six Premier League games, losing five and conceding 21 goals. These poor results eventually led to the dismissal of the Argentine coach from the team bench.

"This has been the toughest decision I have had to make during my tenure at Leeds United, taking into account all the success Marcelo has had at the club," said Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani.

"With Marcelo as our head coach, we had three incredible campaigns and the good times returned to Elland Road. He changed the culture of the club and brought a winning mentality to us all.

"The moments created, particularly in the 2019-20 season and winning promotion to the Premier League, will of course live long in all our memories, myself and the fans included.

"However, I have to act in the best interest of the club and I believe a change is required now in order to secure our Premier League status. Recent results and performances have not met our expectations.

"We find ourselves in a precarious league position and I feel now is the right time to bring in a new head coach, in order to have an impact in the decisive stage of the season.

"Naturally, myself, along with everyone else at the club would like to thank Marcelo for his efforts and achievements and we wish him the very best for the future."
