The Sunday Mirror has this morning confirmed what ClaretandHugh reported in the middle of February – that the Marseille boss is very much in the frame for the Upton Park job.
With just one win since Christmas Sam Allardyce, despite watching the team play some fine football at times, remains on the edge.
Bielsa has a reputation for producing great footballing teams and has led Marseilles into thrird position behind PSG and Lyon this season.
However, he is very much a hands on boss who broaches no interference from above and is considered whacky and a “bit off the wall.”
A source told ClaretandHugh: “He has had a very strong case made on his behalf and is one we are looking at but he is a guy with a reputation for the bizarre.”
