Marcelo Bielsa is one of the most influential football managers in the modern era, shaping many of the tactical trends that pervade the game today. 

Ste McGovern is joined by Ben Jarman to discuss his amazing legacy and intense obsessiveness on the latest episode of the Nostalgia Ultras podcast. 

We touch on his time at Athletic Club de Bilbao, how his upbringing in Argentina impacted his methods, how he influenced players like Gabriel Batistuta and Alexis Sanchez, why he will never manage a ‘big’ club, how his failure to win major honours has affected his reputation, and his current work at Leeds United.

Ben is co-host of the Fulhamish podcast and a Spanish football aficionado.
