Marcelo Bielsa is infectuous; his way of playing inspires and leads those who support hissbo128 teams to fall in love with him and his ideas.Bradley Hargreaves, a Leeds United fan, has become the latest to grow infatuated with the Argentine.As Bielsa took the reins at Elland Road, Hargreaves moved to Buenos Aires and the Englishman had been an admirer of the coach since his days at Athletic, so he decided to contact Newell's Old Boys with the hope of being able to watch a game and become familiar with the football culture in Rosario.Newell's is where Bielsa cut his teeth and came through as a coach, spending 12 years there between 1980 andsbo128 1992 as assistant, youth team coach and eventually first team coach.The 20-year-old, who has a job in Buenos Aires until December, moved to Rosario, where he stayed at the Hotel Griffa, which overlooks the club's training pitch and was funded by Bielsa himself. Logically, he could not stay in the city without taking in a game.For that reason, he was given the chance to take in their game on Monday against Difensa y Justicia, which, unfortunately ended without a goal before an intense downpour.It didn't matter to Hargreaves though, who had only travelled to Rosario because of his love of Bielsa and ended up living a once-in-a-lifetime experience..sbo128
