‘Bielsa doesn’t have complete backing’

Athletic Bilbao Vice-President Jose Angel Corres has hinted today that Marcelo Bielsa’s time as Coach may be running to an end.

The Argentine is enduring a diffcult second season with the Basques, who are on another poor run of form and sit just three points above the relegation zone.

“In this life, nobody has complete confidence, especially if the results do not come,” Corres told RNE today.

“Bielsa has not been challenged at any time, but obviously we all have credit that can run out. We regret that the team are radically different to last year. But, I am optimistic for this weekend’s game [at Osasuna].”
