Leeds manager Bielsa bankrolls new gym for Elland Road

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has bankrolled a new gym for Elland Road.

The Daily Mail says Bielsa has paid £150,000 for a gym to be installed at Elland Road so staff can keep fit.

The warm-hearted Argentine even asked his wife, who is an architect, to design the state-of-the-art facility which is next to the reception in the East Stand and close to the club's admin offices.

The gym features a host of weights, treadmills, bikes and rowing machines along with pictures of the nearby Yorkshire countryside.

Leeds' motto — Marching On Together — is emblazoned on one of the walls. Insiders say the manager has always been keen to ensure the wider staff, as well as his players and backroom team, are looked after.
