Pep Guardiola paid tribute to Marcelo Bielsa on Twitter after Leeds United’s promotion to the Premier League was secured.

Leeds’ return to the top flight after a 16-year wait was clinched as Huddersfield Town beat West Brom 2-1 in the Championship on Friday.

Manchester City boss Guardiola has previously labelled Bielsa as the best in the world.

And a post on his PepTeam Twitter account read: “The best reaches the @premierleague.”

Liverpool’s James Milner, who made his debut for hometown club Leeds at 16, wrote: “Congratulations LUFC, #backwhereyoubelong.”

City defender Benjamin Mendy played under Bielsa at Marseille and wrote: “Congratulations Marcelo & the boys see you next year.”
