Woodgate: Leeds should never have sacked Bielsa

Former Leeds United defender Jonathan Woodgate believes Marcelo Biels should not have been sacked.

The Elland Road favourite felt that the popular Argentinian would have reversed the club's fortunes despite the end of his reign in February witnessing three heavy losses against Manchester United (4-2), Liverpool (6-0) and Tottenham (4-0) - the culmination of a six-game win-less run that included five defeats.

On Bielsa's dismissal, Woodgate told BritishGambler.co.uk : "I would have kept Bielsa on, as I think he would have turned it round. I know they'd been on a bad run, particularly at home losing a few, but he would have turned it around.

"I was a big fan of Marcelo Bielsa, and what he did to the Leeds team and the players. He improved the club and the players, but I just think Leeds wanted something fresh."
