" My admiration for Marcelo Bielsa is huge because he makes the players much, much better."
" Still, I didn't meet one guy, a former player from Marcelo Biesla who speaks badly about him. They are grateful for his influence on their careers in football."
" He helped me a lot with his advice. Whenever I speak with him, I always feel like he wants to help me."
" It is important for me to say this about Marcelo because it doesn't matter how many titles he had in his career. We are judged by that - how much success we have, how many titles we have won. But that is much less influential than how he has influenced football and his football players."
" That is why, for me, he is the best coach in the world. I am looking forward to seeing him in Lille next season. I am pretty sure his influence on their team, their club and their players will be huge - amazing."
" He is one of the best managers in the world."
" There is no doubt that he had an effect on me. He helped me to mature when I was starting my career at Newell's, he helped me in the national team, and he's continued to help me in my coaching career."
" We're followers of Bielsa and of the way he plays the game, but comparisons are unfair, because we're talking about one of the best."
" People always think that by hiring one of us, they're getting a Bielsa clone, but Marcelo is one of a kind."
" I've always been a fan of Bielsa, who was just starting out as a coach as my playing career was drawing to a close."
" Straight away I warmed to his personality and I take great pride in being compared to him."
