Speaking on French TV show Téléfoot, Lille’s new owner Gérard Lopez discussed the possibility of Marcelo Bielsa becoming the next manager at the club.
“Marcelo has been interested for a while by what we are doing in football. But there are no discussions about a contract or whatever it might be. I have a verbal agreement with him, that is true, but it will more likely be for June… Collot? He should finish the season on the touchline. For Marcelo [Bielsa] at Lille? I would say a 50-50 chance. Today, something that has nothing to do with Lille is forcing him to take a decision. If the decision is positive, there is a very strong chance that he will be at Lille at the end of the season.”
