Danny Binks was inspired to get this tattoo Marcelo Biesla on his right arm.

And if the looks suspiciously familiar then it will be to countless Whites fans.

The original was created by YPN graphic artist Graeme Bandeira as part of the paper’s Spygate coverage which, aside from Brexit, has dominated the news and sport agenda this week.

Danny is a huge fan of Bielsa: “I think he is the best thing to have happened to Leeds since Howard Wilkinson. Lets hope he gets us up.”
