Marcelo Bielsa responds to accusations he will quit Leeds

Marcelo Bielsa has refused to comment on his future after he was questioned whether failure to win promotion to the Premier League would see him walk away from Leeds.

The Elland Road giants are currently third in the Championship, and having lost their last two games are now almost certain to go into the play-offs come the end of the season.

There have been suggestions that the Argentine tactician could leave the Yorkshire side should they fail in their target of reaching the top division for the first time in 15 years.

And when asked about those rumours, Bielsa failed to say what the future would hold.

“It’s not up to me and I don’t have any response to that,” he told reporters.

“It’s not a decision that we have to take now and it’s not the right time to give my opinion on it.”

Leeds host Aston Villa on Sunday in their penultimate match of the regular season.
