What happened to Leeds United in 2018-19?

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa

The eventful season for the sleeping giant club was under the guidance of manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa, a 63-year-old coach who famously managed the national teams in Argentina and Chile as well as European clubs including Athletic Bilbao, Marseille, Lazio and Lille, had an immediate impact at Leeds United following his appointment in June 2018.

His unique style of play meant that the team, who finished thirteenth in 2017-18, were already top of the Championship midway through the 2018-19 season.

The docu-series will cover the highs and lows of the season with exclusive footage of the players and staff behind the scenes, and include moments such as the “spygate” scandal and the controversial uncontested goal in the April 2019 Aston Villa match.
