The Argentine was carrying a Sainsbury's Bag for Life while out and about in Wetherby over the weekend.

Dressed in casual sportswear without Leeds United branding, Bielsa was snapped by a fan in the town on Sunday outside a branch of shoe shop Charles Clinkard.

He was happy to show off both his environmental credentials and his frugal nature by toting the supermarket carrier bag.
