Leeds United promoted: Marcelo Bielsa leads return to Premier League

Huddersfield is about 20 miles southwest of Leeds. There’s not normally much love lost between the clubs, but on Friday, Huddersfield Town was the toast of its grander neighbors having secured the 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion that made sure of Leeds’s promotion to the Premier League after a 16-year absence. Leeds, no doubt, would rather have wrapped up its return to the top flight in front of a packed Elland Road, but at least it was achieved in West Yorkshire.

And, frankly, Leeds will not care. It is back. And it is back with a genuinely exciting team under one of the world’s great managers. Usually teams come up to the Premier League with a sense of trepidation, but Marcelo Bielsa is a manager who can make a team dream. After all the near misses, both for him and for Leeds, the job is done and Leeds can approach the new season with excitement.
