MARCELO BIELSA Coaching Build Up Play Against High Pressing Teams

Marcelo Bielsa played for his hometown football team Newell's Old Boys in the Argentine Primera División.

His playing career ended at the age of 25 in 1980, at which time he decided to dedicate himself to coaching.

He worked at Newell's Old Boys as a scout and as Assistant Coach, until being appointed Head Coach in 1990.

He was admired so much for his time at the club, they have since named their stadium after him - ‘Estadio Marcelo Bielsa’.

Before leaving Newell's Old Boys in 1993, Bielsa won 2 league titles and got to the final of the Copa Libertadores (1992), losing the final on penalties against Brazilian team São Paulo.

He then had spells in Mexico and back in Argentina with Vélez Sársfield, before managing the Argentine national team.

Bielsa's time at Argentina was successful and he was much admired for his style of play.

In 2004, they won the Summer Olympics Tournament Gold Medal and were runners up in the Copa América.

He then went on to enjoy further success at international level with Chile, successfully qualifying for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, qualifying through the group stages and losing to Brazil in the last 16 stage.

During his time managing at International level, with Argentina and Chile, is when the football world really woke up to Bielsa's tactical innovations and exciting brand of attacking football.

After his time with Chile, Marcelo Bielsa returned to club football, with Spanish team Athletic Bilbao.

In his first season in charge, he led Bilbao to the final of the UEFA Europa League and to the final of the Copa Del Rey.

After his time in Spain, Bielsa took over at Marseille where he was commended heavily for his team's style of play and finished fourth in Ligue 1 (France) - he left after one season when many top players were sold against his wishes.

He is now due to take charge of Lille OSC in France, where he will continue to excite with his expansive, attacking style of football - always building up play from the back.
