Former Chile players Mark Gonzalez and Jose Pedro Fuenzalida have played under Marcelo Bielsa for the national team in the past. The two players revealed an interesting ritual that Marcelo Bielsa follows every time his side loses an official match. They said that after a loss to Ecuador, they saw Marcelo Bielsa get naked and lie down on a table for 30 minutes.

They added, “He was really hot, walking up and down, not speaking with anybody. There was another dressing room next to us and he was there. We walked in and he was completely naked, laying on top of a treatment table like someone was going to perform surgery on him. He was there for about 30 minutes, totally naked. It happened to me several times. We lost a final 1-0 to Italy playing well and missing a lot of players. He even fought with the Italy manager. He went to the dressing room angry, and when we entered he was going mad walking around and taking off his clothes.”

Imagine what the Leeds United squad would have witnessed if Liam Cooper had not scored the equaliser against Brentford last weekend?
