I know the fan with his jacket over his arm having a selfie with Marcelo about 14 seconds in of the first tweet, sat next to him on a couple of our away trips, lives in Lincolnshire

If Don Revie was a father to Leeds, Bielsa may end up being our grandad. Never known a manager of such down to earth humility.

What a Gent. He doesn't look annoyed just pleased to have pictures and videos done. He is already a Leeds Legend simply down to his persona, I'd love it if we went up with him at the helm. It would cement him in Leeds history.

Bielsa understands what people need, time, personal interest, recognition.
But knowing and doing are not always the same thing, but in my book MB goes the extra mile to give a bit of himself to those young fans.

Compare that with many football players who walk around sheathed inside their headphones oblivious to all and sundry.

I will never forget the day when Ray Wilkins while on I international duty came over to us young boys and started chatting to us. In no rush, asking questions and listening to what we told him. What a way to teach others what is most important in life. Other people.

MB is cut from the same cloth.

Wonder what happened.

Can we not learn to stay out of the headlines?

Edit.

Just realised it was an old story

Phew...
