Marcelo Bielsa And Sammy Lee Agreed To Swap Coats In Brilliant Exchange
Marcelo Bielsa and Sammy Lee agreed to swap coats following Leeds United’s victory over West Brom in a bizarre yet brilliant exchange.
Already-relegated West Brom went to Leeds on the final day of the Premier League season and lost 3-1.
Lee and Bielsa exchanged words on the touchline before appearing to agree to the swap in the tunnel.
¿Cambio de camisetas entre jugadores? Un millón.
¿Cambio de camperas? La primera que veo.
Sammy Leé, ayudante de Sam Allardyce en el West Bromwich Albion, le pidió cambiar la campera a Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa’s all-action side finished the campaign in the top half, securing an impressive ninth-place – ahead of the likes of Everton, Aston Villa and Wolves.
And speaking on his team’s achievement, he said: “It’s difficult to offer a conclusion because on one side I am very satisfied with what the team achieved but on the other side I feel like we could have added a few more points.
“If we divided the competition in two, in the second part of the season we received 50% less of the goals that we did in the first part.
“Had we had that security defensively the whole campaign we could have added those points I would have liked this season.
“Anyway, I am satisfied with what we achieved, it is very difficult to win a game in the Premier League, very difficult.
“On the other side like I said, I feel like we could have had a few more points.”
