He does love to keep fans and journalists on their toes but it’s expected Marcelo Bielsa will be in charge of Leeds for the upcoming season.
The Argentine is technically out of contract at Elland Road, however, that’s just how he tends to do things.
He’s never let Leeds down like this during his three-year stint but fans will be ever so slightly worried until his future being secured is announced.
The Whites had a first season back in the Premier League to remember as they finished ninth in the table.
Bielsa was rightly lauded for his work at the Yorkshire club and Jamie O’Hara believes the manager should take some time to think about his next move, insisting there are better things out there.
O’Hara told talkSPORT: “He needs to be at a big club Bielsa, doesn’t he? He needs to be at a club like Barcelona let’s be honest.”
Asked about the possibility of Bielsa managing Tottenham one day, O’Hara said: “Spurs are a bigger club than Leeds… it would be a step up. Jose Mourinho’s not going to go and be Leeds manager, is he?
“I’m not saying Leeds aren’t a big club and I’m not saying Bielsa needs to leave, I’m saying he should be at a club like Barcelona. He’s a great manager and Leeds are very lucky to have him.
“I’d love him at Spurs but he’s never going to leave Leeds to go to Spurs. Not enough ambition at Spurs.”
Bielsa was the topic of conversation later on Wednesday’s Drive show as O’Hara reiterated his point that the 66-year-old should be aiming higher than Leeds.
Asked whether Bielsa is too good for Leeds, O’Hara said: “Of course he is! He’s a world-class manager.
“I think he has a sort of love affair with that club, the town and the fans. They all love him and I think he loves them.
“But if someone like Barcelona, Real Madrid or PSG come knocking, I’m sorry, you’re not staying at Leeds United, you’re going.”
