It has been confirmed that a Leeds street which was renamed ‘Marcelo Bielsa Way’ following the side’s promotion to the Premier League in 2020 will remain a permanent fixture in the city to honour the former Leeds United manager.
The renamed street, which connects Trinity Leeds shopping centre to Commercial Street in the heart of the city’s shopping district, was unveiled on Wednesday 22 July 2020 following confirmation of Leeds United’s promotion to the Premier League.
David Maddison, centre director said: “When we announced the street renaming, we did it because what Marcelo had done for Leeds United and our city was nothing short of incredible. It wasn’t just that he’d won promotion and transformed the club, it was the manner in which he’d done it – the Bielsa way – that was so special.
“The city will be forever grateful to him, for these special years, and it’s only right that we should continue to honour the man in this way – gracias Marcelo.”
