Marcelo Bielsa confirms he will coach Athletic Club if Arechabaleta is president


Marcelo Bielsa confirmed he will become Athletic Club Bilbao’s coach if Iñaki Arechabaleta wins the presidential election on June 24th. Argentina’s coach in the World Cup of 2002 affirmed the rumors through a live presentation as part of the candidate’s election campaign.

Although Arechabaleta was supposedly the one with the least voting intention among the three candidates for president, this move can make him win the elections this Friday.

Bielsa has been one of Athletic’s best coaches in the club’s history (2011-2013), taking the team to the Copa del Rey and UEFA Europa League finals; both during the 2011-2012 season.


  1. Journalist to Muller: What is the difference between Messi & Cristiano ?

    Thomas Müller :” Cristiano Ronaldo is a good player,the bad thing is that he insinuates that he is the best but Messi is the best in history and doesn’t insinuate it “

  2. Enzo Fernandez has changed his mind on staying at River. He is willing to move to Europe this summer.
    Benfica and Wolverhampton want him and sending people to Argentina this week, but AC Milan see him as an alternative if they can’t get Renato Sanches (who is likely to go to PSG).
    Enzo’s priority would obviously be Milan.

  3. A supercomputer predicted the world cup winner and its france. This is the ranking
    Wonder why Argentina is so low in the prediction

    • England, Belgium, Netherlands cmon these will never win a WC, never…..France is horrible, key players are out of form or finished Kante, Pogba, Varane, Griezmann, Brazil will lose against the first top euro team as usual, they are not tough enough mentally, Germany is not ready plus no class forwards and defenders, Spain no class attackers too, plus they are always bad in WCs even in 2010 as sky high favourite built on 1 fckin team. 1 WC semi final in their whole history in 2010 if im not mistakes, Spain and the WC is a whole different universum. Portugal is Portugal max semi final. And Argentina the best TEAM, the best collective, no ego wars and a man on the mission. We will win

    • It’s prediction for 2018 WC was for Spain to win it. When were they out again? Even Octopus, a cat, turtle etc have made predictions and it’s just for fun! Let this go, Anuparno! I don’t like to see France get another star on their badge but hey, who knows?!

  4. Argentina vs Brazil in September will no longer be played in Europe. It will be played in Brazil at Corinthians Stadium, on FIFA’s recommendations. Surprise!
    Neither Argentina or Brazil want the match to be played and both federations have appealed for the match to be called off.
    Argentina’s plan was to play 2 matches against another continent in September.

  5. Lisandro Martinez transfer news: Man Utd move ahead of Arsenal in race for defender, Barcelona and PSG in mix

    The sun

  6. Bielsa loves possission and pressing so much that his team energy usually deplated in second half of the season. This is why he hardly wins any major trophy. In modern football you cant be stubborn and relying 100% on your old fashioned philosophy.

  7. With appropriate players Bielsa’s team will be very attacking and will dominate possession , however if he doesn’t have the right players then it will end up like Leeds united (conceded 79 and scored 42)!!!
