Pep Guardiola is over the moon about the fact Marcelo Bielsa will be making his debut in the Premier League next season. The Argentinian led Leeds United to the EFL Championship title and a return to the Premier league, bringing an end to their 16-year absence from the top flight.
The 64-year-old Bielsa is widely considered as one of the best coaches in the world and Guardiola has hailed the coach during a press talk on Monday. “I was not his player so it’s difficult for me to talk about him, but I know the reference and the influence for a thousand-million players who were with him.”
“I am lucky to sometimes have the opportunity to talk to him and see him. He is an authentic manager because no other manager can play the way he plays. No one can imitate him and that makes him so special”, he added. “For English football, it will be incredible for him to be in the Premier League next season and learn about him.”
