According to the Leeds United manager, the future of the game is at stake because of the rampant commercialism surrounding it

Argentinean coach Marcelo Bielsa has always been controversial when he talks.

The Leeds United boss is currently enjoying his time managing in the English Championship.

“When a team doesn’t get what it deserves, sooner or later the fans banish the lack of results,” he told Leeds Live.

“The lack of tolerance regarding the lack of results is stronger than the lack of tolerance when the style is not beautiful.”

Bielsa says he’s proud of Leeds United

The Argentinean coach believes his team is doing well, as they are looking for the English Championship title.

“The fans that tolerate are more willing to expect to wait for the beauty of the game when they have the results,” he added.

“I think that the commercialization of football when the clubs are owned by private people the result is more important than anything.”

“But the most attractive thing in football is the beauty of the game. Those who invest in football should be aware or take precautions to keep the level of the business they bought,” he explained.

“The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequence of our acts. And with football, it will be the same. Because we are destroying football and in the future, we will see the negative effects of this.”
