Marcelo Bielsa remains in a ‘state of reflection’ following his departure from Leeds United, despite Chile being keen to hire him.
That’s according to La Tercera, who cover the Argentine’s future today and where he may end up.
Bielsa is currently a free agent after leaving Leeds in February, with the Whites electing to bring his time in charge at Elland Road to an end amid relegation fears and replace him by Jesse Marsch.
However, the decision to appoint the American has yet to bear fruit as the club continue to fear relegation back to the Championship.
Bielsa, meanwhile, has been linked with jobs around the world but is yet to take up his next position.
La Tercera report that he is once again among the options to coach Chile, whom he managed from 2007-to 2011.
The nation’s leadership will ‘vigorously explore’ the option of re-hiring Bielsa, but the ANFP assumes that doing so will be a complicated task.
While he would be an extremely popular choice, they are cautious as they know El Loco is still going through a ‘personal process’ following his departure from Leeds.
He has been in a ‘state of reflection’ regarding the next step in his career, something that has already seen him reject a move to Chivas Guadalajara.
Because of this, those in charge at the Chilean headquarters believe that other options are more attainable than Bielsa at this moment in time.
