The FA’s Hodgson replacement just became available

Love it! We’ve got another dose of classic ‘Bielsa Banter’ with the eccentric Argentine quitting Lazio after just two days!

The clearly fuming and surprised Serie A outfit have released the following statement:

“We acknowledge with astonishment the resignation of Marcelo Bielsa, inclusive of his collaborators, in blatant violation of the deal agreed via the contracts signed last week and lawfully deposited with the Lega and the FIGC, according to all the related procedures,” a club statement read.

“The club reserves the right to take all actions that will protect its rights, and hands the leadership of the team during the preparatory training to Simone Inzaghi.”

Bielsa only took over on Wednesday, however, there are several reports that Gerardo Martino’s decision to step-down as Argentina manager has led to the former Chile gaffer reconsidering his decision to go back into club management.

If the former Athletic Bilbao gaffer wasn’t a real manager, it would probably be necessary to invent him; he’s blockbuster.

Above, Bielsa is a giving a speech about collectivism and togetherness as a team, a speech that saw his Marseille players give him a round of applause for. It highlights the wonderful uniqueness – sometimes, oddness – of Bielsa as a manager.

If Bielsa’s resignation wasn’t over his desire to take over the Argentina national team, then the English FA should move quickly and make the 60-year-old the man to replace Roy Hodgson.

Bielsea demands an attacking, high-intensity brand of football, something the Three Lions fans haven’t seen since…nope, they just haven’t actually ever seen it.

Sure, it may well take awhile to implement but let’s at least see some sort of method in the madness; let’s give the old boys club, which is the FA, a shake-up and get them down from that ivory tower.
