Manchester United and Leeds United open their participation in the Premier League this Saturday at 8.30 in Argentina, in a match that will be broadcast by ESPN. Leeds is directed by Marcelo Bielsa, who then opens his fourth season in England.

So far this cycle, the Argentine managed to get the team promoted and, once in the Premier, kept it away from the risk of relegation: Leeds finished ninth, six units away from qualifying for the Europa League. A few days ago, Bielsa confirmed that he would continue in office for a season. “It is a situation that has already been resolved. From my point of view this is an extraordinary club ”, he commented.

"This is an extraordinary club," celebrated Bielsa, pleased by the investment Leeds is making in training.

Raphaël Varane, one of his reinforcements, will not be at Manchester United because he could not complete his transfer from Real Madrid in time. The Frenchman still has to get a visa, undergo a quarantine and then expose himself to a medical examination.
