Bournemouth are considering hiring former Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa has been out of work since being sacked by Leeds United earlier this year. The Argentine, known for his fast-paced, intense pressing systems, has taken a break from football but could be back in the Premier League.
According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Bournemouth are considering signing Bielsa.
The Bournemouth team is still made up of many players who played under Eddie Howe. The current Newcastle coach demanded a lot from his players in terms of pressure, as did Bielsa, so the former Leeds coach could be the ideal appointment for Bournemouth.
