Costa Coffee, a 'granny flat' and walking to work: Leeds United boss Marcelo Bie...

No designer labels for him - other than Leeds branded gear, of course - but simply reusable bags for life, most likely picked up on his shopping trips near his Wetherby home.

He is frequently spotted in his local Sainsbury's and Morrisons.

Bielsa was snapped at Leeds Station before the Whites headed down to London for their clash with West Ham.

Wearing a mask and clutching his Sainsbury's bag, fans couldn't resist speculating what was inside.

The Leeds Everywhere Twitter account, which shared the photo, hoped it was a bag of cans, in true away day fashion.

One speculated: "Peejays and toothbrush."

Another fan guessed: "He'll have his flask of hot water, his "calabash gourd" (cup) and his "yerba mate" tea. Argentines wouldn't leave home without that."

"Maybe there's some crayons and a colouring book in there for Alioski," said another.

And another said: "There is a pint of milk and a couple of pork pies in there."

He can often by seen walking to the club's training ground in Thorp Arch.
