Bielsa turns down River

The club are struggling in the Apertura, Argentina’s Premier Division, and are at risk of relegation, which lead to Cappa’s sacking last week. But the vice President Omar Solassi told TyC Sports that Bielsa had rejected the chance to join the club.

“We talked and he (Bielsa) appreciated that we thought of him, but he told us he was under contract with Chile and he could not do anything else but see out the deal.”
