Lille Sacks Marcelo Bielsa

The Sun (UK)

Lille has confirmed the sacking of Marcelo Bielsa as the club announced on Friday that they had terminated Bielsa’s contract via their official Twitter account.

Bielsa, 62, joined Lille in May amid a ton of fanfare and some very high expectations, but his relationships with club officials,particularly with sporting director Luis Campos, reportedly deteriorated quickly.

Bielsa, who was ‘suspended momentarily’ in November after he won just three of his first 13 games, ends a very bizarre, but short, tenure with Lille.
