The Marcelo Bielsa was expelled from Leeds United Caused a cataract of messages in favor of the Argentine coach. However, it also caused an important captain of Chilean football, with whom he had differences in his time as coach of the national team, to ridicule the Argentine. This is Jorge Segovia, the former head of ANFP, who posted acidic sarcasm on his account. Twitter.

“Did they shoot it again? It’s hard to follow because it happens so often,” The leader’s message was in response to a user of social networks, who wrote “Don Jorge Segovia, Marcelo Bielsa is free … just like that …”.

The truth is that The relationship between Jorge Segovia and Marcelo Bielsa did not end in the best way When El Loco led the Chilean national team. The leader took over the presidency of the National Football League after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and since then there have been several short courses with the coach.

In an apparent disagreement with the administrations of the ANFP businessman, who currently owns Unión Española, Marcelo Bielsa ended up stepping down, also prompted by Sergio Gado’s arrival on the ANFP board. “I can’t work with Mr. Segovia, that’s impossible”The Argentine announced ahead of the November 2010 Afghan National Front elections.

Then Bielsa said: Whoever does not respect democratic processes is a fascist. If I risk becoming a fascist in my exhibition, I must be very careful in what I say (…). The heart of football is the people and Segovia says that the opinion of the people does not matter, and they do not vote, Those who do that are the bosses. So I wonder: Is it really a democracy that does not take into account who are the livelihood of football?

On the other hand, Segovia was not far behind While searching for a replacement, he realized that he had to find a coach who would bring real, not moral, victories to Chile. “There is talk of Bielsa’s business, but what Bielsa has earned, nothing”, shooting.

Currently, 24 hours after class, Leeds United announced to replace him. This is the American coach Jesse Marshall48, who will try to win back a team just two points from the relegation zone in the Premier League.
