Bielsa was forced to address his future earlier this week, admitting he does not want to begin discussions over a new deal until the end of the season, despite having no intention of leaving the club. “It could be interpreted as the club having more of a desire for me to stay than I do and that’s not the case. In no way do I want to position myself above the club. I reiterate, I am not going to manage any other options until my job here at Leeds is done. There is no speculation from my part.”
Southampton, meanwhile, finally brought a dire streak of defeats to an end with a draw against Chelsea last time out. Ralph Hasenhuttl will hope that result has finally eased the pain of the club’s 9-0 thrashing by Manchester United, although after such a promising start to the season, the Saints hopes of securing European football have now been all but eradicated.
