Bielsa’s Basque revolution at a crossroads

Marcelo Bielsa signing to a new deal at Athletic Bilbao is the start to the kind of summer the club need for its future progress, says Iain McMullen.

Nagusi eroa baino, gogorra hobe. A harsh boss is better than a crazy one. The Basques are renowned for their wisdom, however there are probably many who would suggest the current boss of the region’s most famous football club is both harsh and crazy.

With an almost monomaniacal approach to the game, there can be little doubt Marcelo Bielsa has had a huge impact at Athletic Club since walking through the doors at San Mames last summer.
