Marcelo Bielsa

Former Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is in talks with Bolivia national team over the managerial role. 

Bielsa was sacked by Leeds United last month following a 4-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League. The 66-year-old is likely to get back to management after Bolivia FA president Fernand Costa confirmed during his recent press conference that there are ‘in contact’ with Bielsa as they seek to replace Cesar Farias.

“I won’t deny that we are in touch with him,” Costa said.

“We have not yet had a meeting, but we are close to speaking with him. We are speaking with a number of coaches, including national team managers, and listening to what they have to offer.

“Once we have a sheaf of proposals we will evaluate them. It is important to know how much money we have available for our national teams.”

Bolivia have lost their last three consecutive World Cup Qualifiers and will be hosting Brazil next week in their final group stage clash.
