Scott Minto has predicted on Twitter that Leeds United will win the Championship title next season.

Minto, who played for Charlton Athletic, Chelsea and West Ham United among other clubs, made the prediction following Leeds’s decision this week to keep Bielsa in charge of the first team next season.

Bielsa was appointed the Leeds head coach in the summer of 2018 and guided the Whites to a third-placed finish in the Championship table.

The West Yorkshire outfit, though, failed to clinch promotion to the Premier League via the playoffs, as they lost to Derby County in the two-legged semi-finals.

Leeds announced on their official website this week that club chairman Andrea Radrizzani has exercised the option to extend Bielsa’s contract for a season season.

Minto, who now works as a presenter for Sky Sports, has given his take on Radrizzani’s decision on Twitter, and he believes that Leeds will end up winning the Championship title during the 2019-20 and clinching automatic promotion to the Premier League.
