Marcelo Alberto Bielsa Caldera (born 21 July 1955) is an Argentine football manager, currently in charge of English side Leeds United.

Bielsa has managed several football clubs and also the national teams of Argentina and Chile.

He developed his career as coach of Newell's Old Boys, leading that team to several wins in the early 1990s, then moved to Mexico in 1992, briefly coaching Club Atlas and Club América. Bielsa returned to Argentina in 1997 to manage Vélez Sársfield.

With Chile, he achieved cult status due to the improved results of the national team under his leadership. His personality and gestures during his stint in Chile captured the attention of media and unleashed a series of minor controversies both in sports and politics.

He had a two year-spell in Spain at Athletic Bilbao between 2011 and 2013, leading them to domestic and continental cup finals in the first season, though losing both. On 8 August 2015, Bielsa resigned as coach of Olympique Marseille after just over a year at the French club.

On 15 June 2018 he was appointed as manager of Leeds United, prior to which his most recent role had been at Lille.
