🛑Marcelo Bielsa 'leaves Leeds' just hours after Tottenham loss

Marcelo Bielsa seems to have departed Leeds United only hours after his side was thrashed 4-0 by Tottenham at home.

The Argentine had been largely expected to leave Elland Road as the Whites battle to avoid Premier League relegation, having also conceded 60 goals in their 26 games this season.

The 4-0 home defeat to Antonio Conte's men on Saturday afternoon was the final straw for Bielsa, who had seen his team concede six goals to Liverpool and four to Manchester United in the two previous games.

The club is now 16th in the Premier League, two points above the relegation zone, albeit Burnley and Everton both have two games in hand.

For the first time since 2018, Leeds must now hire a manager, and according to reports, they have picked Jesse Marsch, the former head coach of RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg, as their primary target.

Marsch, 48, is available having left the Bundesliga side in December after just five months in charge.
