The defeat against Tottenham this Saturday (0-4) was lethal for Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa, who was dismissed as manager of Leeds United.
Bielsa and Leeds suffered their fourth defeat in a row to inch ever closer to the relegation zone. In addition, the team received 20 goals against in recent days. The fans fired the team in the middle of a whistle.
The Argentine DT had never lasted so long at the head of a club: at Leeds United he spent three and a half years, took it in the second division and took it back to the Premier League. But this season he has the worst defense in the championship, with 60 goals conceded.

Bielsa’s resignation at a press conference
“I think the result is fair, we could have reduced the differences but we never had to dominate or govern the process of the match. Although we created scoring options, we never had a feeling of dominance over the rival”, Bielsa explained.
The South American coach’s team does not raise its head. Without the ability to react, he was overwhelmed by a rival who entered the twenty-seventh session with doubts and with only one game won in their last quarters.
In half an hour, Antonio Conte’s team sentenced the clash, who opened the scoring after ten minutes with the goal that was born with a shipment from Ryan Sesegnon to Matt Doherty that opened the scoring and also led to the second, when he assisted Dejan Kulusevski in a counterattack to beat Islan Meslier again after a quarter of an hour.
The third was from Harry Kane who took advantage of a cross from the Danish Pierre Emile Hojberg to execute a low shot and sentence the crash. Then the incapable Leeds did not improve during the second half.

The London team closed the match five from the end, with a goal from Korean Heung Min Son after receiving a pass from Kane.
Difficult scenario for Leeds: this is how it was in the table
The victory again brings Europe closer to Tottenham, which equals West Ham on points, sixth in the table and which marks the continental zone. Leeds is three from relegation.
