Bolivia FA president reveals talks with ex-Leeds boss Bielsa

Sacked Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa is in talks to take the Bolivia national team job.

Bielsa left Elland Road at the end of last month after four years in the role following a a torrid run of results which plunged Leeds' Premier League future into doubt.

The 66-year-old former Argentina and Chile coach may not find himself out of work for long as president Fernando Costa confirmed at a recent press conference that the Bolivian FA were 'in contact' with Bielsa as they seek to replace Cesar Farias.

"I won't deny that we are in touch with him," Costa said. "We have not yet had a meeting, but we are close to speaking with him.

"We are speaking with a number of coaches, including national team managers, and listening to what they have to offer.

"Once we have a sheaf of proposals we will evaluate them. It is important to know how much money we have available for our national teams."
