A poor performance at Old Trafford at the weekend didn’t do much for Marcelo Bielsa’s reputation, and it is the latest in a handful of performances that could have been avoided if the Argentine had made his team play more defensively.
However, that has never been in Bielsa’s makeup and perhaps that is why people like Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino enjoy his philosophy so much.
Football on the front foot is always good to watch, of course, with the knowledge that it will occasionally be easily knocked out.
However, TalkSPORT’s Simon Jordan is certainly not a fan.
? “I don’t sit there, Bielsa’s slave.”
? “He has not held a managerial position of any kind for a significant period of time.”
