Middlesbrough manager Tony Pulis insists new Leeds Unites manager, Marcelo Bielsa has what it takes to lead the club to a very successful Championship campaign.
The Whites are currently on top of the table in the Sky Bet Championship, level on points with Pulis’ Boro but ahead on goal difference and both teams come up against each other this Friday.
Pulis, who is vastly experienced himself, insists that the Peacocks are lucky to have a man of Bielsa’s stature at the helm.
Heaping further praise on the Argentine manager, the former West Brom manager said that his counterpart is a top manager and knows all about the game. Pulis also thinks that Bielsa is the right fit for Leeds.
“He is a top, top manager. He’s a top coach who knows the game, he’s very experienced, he knows what the game is all about”, Pulis said at a press conference, according to InsideFutbol.
“He’s been at some big clubs and he has the experience to handle the situation there.”
“And that’s what Leeds need, they need someone with the experience to ride the enthusiasm and potential there.”
Middlesbrough beat Rochdale in the EFL Cup in midweek, while the Whites lost their match against Preston North End on Tuesday.
