Football prediction The biggest case in French football is underway, in which Bielsa is suing Lille for 19 million
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa will be heard today by the court in Lille via video link. The hearing prompted the case, which the Argentine filed two and a half years ago after he was fired by Lille. Bielsa insists that his contract was terminated illegally and claims compensation in the amount of 19 million euros, which the French club will pay him. The lawsuit is the largest in the history of French football, although the possible compensation, if Bielsa fights for it, will be the second largest after the 22 million that Laurent Blanc received years ago from Paris Saint-Germain. Bielsa will speak in court for about 20 minutes today, but the final decision will be known only in about three months, according to local media.
The case is complicated by the fact that Bielsa has two signed contracts with Lille. According to the first, the specialist must receive his full salary by the end of his two-year contract, regardless of the reasons for its early termination. In the second, to which the club via how to buy fixed matches refers, there is no such clause. Lille also insisted that Bielsa`s dismissal was motivated by serious misconduct because he had refused to comply with the then leadership and had publicly shown disrespect for him.
