Street Renamed In Honour Of Manager Behind Historic Leeds United Promotion

Football fans and visitors to Leeds will now be able to go ‘marching on together’ along Marcelo Bielsa Way after a city street was renamed in honour of the Whites manager following their promotion last night.



Signage for the street, which connects Trinity Leeds shopping centre to Commercial Street in the heart of the city’s shopping district, will be installed next week.

Trinity Leeds, which is behind the street renaming, is also temporarily changing its name to Trinity Leeds United for the month of July to celebrate Leeds’ return to the Premier League.

David Maddison, Centre Director of Trinity Leeds United, said: “This is a fantastic moment for the city and we are delighted to be able to share in the celebrations as Leeds United return to the Premier League.

“The speed at which the manager has turned around the fortunes of this team and the manner in which he’s done it – the Bielsa way – he deserves all the plaudits and we are absolutely delighted to rename this street ‘Marcelo Bielsa Way’.

“The street renaming is a permanent reminder for fans, and any visitors from his native Argentina, of the team’s incredible achievement.

“We’re proud to be part of the Leeds United community and we wish the players, the manager and the fans every success for next season.”
