The rival players honored Leeds with a hallway of honor before the match after securing promotion on Friday and also the title of English Second Division champion, in both cases without playing, due to the defeats of their pursuers West Brom and Brentford.
Leeds certified their promotion to the top flight of English football on Friday for the first time in the last 16 years after spending even three seasons in League One.
It was Bielsa’s second season at Leeds after landing in the summer of 2018 on Elland Road and taking the team a year ago to the promotion playoffs, where they fell to the semi-finals against precisely Derby County.
