REVEALED: Bielsa fluffed his West Ham interview to blow job chance

Marcelo Bielsa held talks with West Ham United at the end of last season, it has been revealed.

Bielsa dramatically quit OM last week, insisting there was no rival club behind his decision.

Le 10 Sport says Bielsa held talks with West Ham and was keen on the job - but fluffed his interview presentation.

A source said: "(Before the meeting) The president of the Hammers explained to him that he was not his type of coach.

"This made him think. They gave him three minutes to present his project, which made the Argentine stumble. The east London club finally chose Slaven Bilic."
