After last season's successful loan, Leeds attempted to sign White outright last summer, but couldn't convince Brighton to sell.
Ahead of this weekend's reunion, Bielsa said: "All of us here admire him as a player. We respect him and love him as a human being. He was an excellent professional as well as a team-mate.
"I hope his career allows him to grow because he deserves it."
The Argentine added: "Ben White has shown he is a PL player."
