Former Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa continues to be linked with a return to the Premier League. It has been more than a year since Bielsa was sacked by the Whites and replaced by Jesse Marsch, and he is yet to return to management. The Argentine has already been linked with a number of jobs, but reports have suggested he wants a full summer to work on a project.
The links don’t end there, though. Fresh reports this week have suggested Everton boss Frank Lampard is under pressure. Football Insider have reported that the Toffees are mulling over a change of manager during the World Cup break, with Lampard guiding Everton to just one win in their last seven games.
It’s claimed Everton are interested in snapping up Bielsa, with conversations being had behind the scenes about hiring the Argentine. Although, bookmakers are not yet convinced. Bookmakers.co.uk last reported Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou as the favourite, while Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers and Scott Parker are all above Bielsa, should Lampard be sacked.
Bielsa is as low as 20/1 in the odds, and part of that will be because of Lampard still being in place for now. Although, the former Chelsea boss is being tipped to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked. The bookmakers also think David Moyes of West Ham, Jesse Marsch, Steeve Cooper of Nottingham Forest and Graham Potter of Chelsea are under pressure. For now, though, it’s just Bournemouth and Everton Bielsa is being linked with.
