Without a position since February and his departure from Leeds United, Marcelo Bielsa could well find a bench on the side of a selection just eliminated from the World Cup.

The rest after this ad

Here are more than six big ones that we see Marcelo Bielsa (67) chaining conferences around the world. Through these masterclasses, the professor exposes his vision of football or his different tactical plans. After his adventure of almost 4 years in Leeds, a club record for him, the technician takes his time to meet people before returning to the pitch. It may well be that this new adventure takes shape after the World Cup.

Based on information from Tyc Sports, Marcelo Bielsa is the priority of the Uruguayan federation to take the reins of the selection after this World Cup. As a reminder, Celeste was eliminated yesterday in the group stage, despite their victory over Ghana 2-0. Except that at the same time, South Korea beat Portugal, stealing 2nd place in the group at the same time. This early exit from the World Cup also marks the end of the golden generation, illustrated by the Cavani-Suarez duo, but also Godin or Muslera.

Mission: reviving Uruguay with a new generation

It had managed to qualify this small South American country at the last 4 World Cups, managing the first three times to qualify for the final phase (semi-final in 2010, 8th in 2014, quarter-final in 2018) . This time, she did not succeed and will pass the torch. Marcelo Bielsa will undoubtedly be responsible for this heavy task of ensuring continuity, which will not be easy, but in reality, this position seems to fit the former OM coach like a glove.

< p>Coach of Argentina (1998-2004) then of Chile (2007-2011), El Loco left great memories each time, failing to have triumphed (a gold medal at the Olympic Games with the Albiceleste all the same). His mission would be to qualify Uruguay for the 2026 World Cup in Mexico, the United States and Canada, but before that to achieve a good run at the Copa America in Ecuador in 2024. Bielsa would take over from Diego Alonso, whose contract ended with elimination.
