Some days, it seems like soccer belongs to him and he just shares it with the rest of us. He led Leeds to ninth place last season and despite his troubles this season, not many of them can be attributed to his door. It’s easy to forget where Leeds United were when Crazy He took the reins of this club and charged to the top. It has been nothing short of sublime to watch under the Argentine, refusing to compromise his ideals, playing without abandon with many of the players reinventing themselves individually.. His crowning glory may be promotion, really, but talk to those who watch his football – that’s Bielsa’s true legacy in England. ”

The title in the Copa América also allowed Scaloni to enter the great payroll. “Argentina won their first trophy since 1993 with this year’s Copa América victory, making Scaloni the first Argentine coach to win something with Lionel Messi on his team, which has to be worth something.”, justified its location on the 21st site.
