Bilbao train without Bielsa
Athletic Bilbao players continue to train without manager Marcelo Biesla as questions continue to surround his future at the club.
Reports on Friday claimed the former Argentina boss had resigned from his role at San Mames after a row with the club's board over renovation work at the training ground.
The outspoken 56-year-old has accused contractors on the site as ""ripping-off, robbing, and deceiving" the club, but has since apologised for his actions, claiming the comments were made in Bilabo's best interests.
Los Leones trained without their coach again yesterday but it remains uncertain whether he has indeed left his role with the club, with reports now suggesting the Bilbao board have persuaded Biesla to mull over his decision to leave in a "period of reflection" from the club.
Biesla impressed during his first season with the La Liga club, guiding them to their first Europa League final and a Copa del Rey final, although his side were beaten 3-0 in both fixtures by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
