The Elland Road outfit managed a ninth-place finish in their first Premier League campaign in 16 years last term, but have  struggled to meet those standards this season.


Leeds have won only one of their nine league matches so far and find themselves sitting 17th in the table, just three points above 18th-placed Burnley.



As pressure continues to mount on Leeds to move away from the relegation zone, former top flight star McInally is surprised why not many are questioning Bielsa’s position as the Whites’ boss.


McInally is aware that Bielsa is viewed highly among many other managers in the game, but stressed the need for the Argentine to turn things around at Leeds to avoid relegation this term.



I’m interested, nobody is speaking about Bielsa because we all love Bielsa“, McInally said on Footy Accumulators’ The Group Chat.


He’s like the messiah all the other managers love because he is so thorough and he knows every player and every stat, etc.



But, he’s got to start getting results for Leeds United or they won’t be 5/6, they will be 1/6 [odds to get relegated].


While there are 29 more games to play in the Premier League this season, it remains to be seen if the Leeds hierarchy will pull the plug on Bielsa if the team do not move away from the relegation zone soon.
