Meanwhile, Tottenham have been linked with a number of names to permanently succeed Mourinho.

Lazio head coach Simone Inzaghi, Fulham boss Scott Parker and Brighton’s Graham Potter are among those in the frame to take over at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Leeds beat Spurs 3-1 at Elland Road last weekend to condemn Ryan Mason’s side to an 11th league defeat of the season.

Bielsa’s men are currently just six points behind Tottenham and could still finish above the 2019 Champions League finalists.

It has been a thrilling first top flight campaign in 17 years for Leeds fans.

The Whites have netted and conceded 53 times in just 35 games as Bielsa’s thrilling style of play has drawn praise from across the country.
