Stay Classy . . . . .

Post by Cjay »

Can you imagine Marcelo Bielsa speaking like this about one of his former coaches. . . . .

I think even if Bielsa was sacked tomorrow and Corberan got the job for example, MB would never give such a salty interview.


This could go on Leon's positive thread.

I am positive that MB would never be so bitter.

May just be because Pep took the Birmingham job after Monk was sacked?

Birmingham Chief Exec made those allegations that Monk was insisting on using a certain agent for transfers and stuff?

As did Boro and Cellino as well.

Presumably its something to do with that.

Why shouldn't he though.
Or is it too much for his ego to handle.

Some folks say that any success Leeds had under Monk was due to Pep.
Sour grapes I say. Pep got the Brum job that Monk was sacked from.

What do you make of the statement that we will never know what Bielsa is like because he does not speak English

I think Bielsa knows more English than he lets on, he just prefers to keep a distance between himself and the press.

Yes but the fallacy of the argument is that you can not tell
anything about a persons character unless they speak English.
Even If Bielsa does not speak English it is evident from his
handling of Spygate and paying the fine out of his own pocket
that his is both humble and honest.

A while back Tony Pulis suggested that Bielsa speaks better English than he makes out.
Apparently he spoke in English when the pair of them had a cup of tea together after we played Boro last season.

Sounds like English to me :roll:

Idiot pundits having a pop.

MB speaks decent English imo but he hates being misunderstood (Spygate) so for clarity he speaks Spanish.

In fact just the other day he corrected the Translator's English translation in English and then the translator repeated it back in English!!!

I agree in general, but it does really depend on the nature of your residence and work. Learning a language fluently needs a good deal of time and submersion in a that language and culture, and we all know managers these days are lucky if they're able to count on knowing where they'll be in 6 months time. So I'm more sympathetic to those situations rather than settling permanently in a country in which case I'l never understand the logic of not learning a language.

There's also the fact that he does know a fair bit of English, but that's just a know-nothing pundit's mistake, which is nowt new.

I personally think Bielsa just wants to give somebody a job even if he's doesn't 100% need an interpreter, because he's just that nice a bloke.

Indeed Marcelo is probably one of the most humble, honest & nicest men in football however I do prefer people in top managerial jobs to speak the English language in all walks of life. I understand he is a busy man & appreciate Bielsa gives so much time & effort to LUFC, he eat, sleeps & breathes Leeds United.

I know if I emigrated I would do my utmost to learn the language of that particular country

The only person Bielsa is bitter towards is himself, it seems.
