Sniff…Whimper…Sniff…Bielsa’s out at Lille.
Bielsa, a man of impeccable personal integrity, flew to Chile to visit Luis Bonini a former assistant suffering with cancer. Strange, Lille’s official position was that Bielsa was “suspended”. I haven’t heard that one before. Is that the football version of “creative differences”?
The break up was inevitable, but this time Bielsa seemed set for success.
He showed up.
He got his requested transfers.
It wasn’t enough.
Are we sure it was the Lille match? Or was he logging into his Steam account?
I’ll take Julien’s word.
P.S. Where to next for Bielsa? My only Christmas wish, the US mens national team.
