As you can see, Marcelo Bielsa has become more popular as the Leeds United head coach. He was already very popular but as Leeds claimed crucial wins which have got them closer to a spot in the Premier League than ever, he is almost unanimously popular. While it is not the highest net approval rating he has received since this series has started, he is still closer than many will ever get to complete unanimous approval. Bielsa has the best chance of getting to 100% next week if Leeds seal their promotion.
