Championship side Leeds United have been promoted to the Premier League with two games remaining.
The team coached by Marcelo Bielsa made the leap after third place West Bromwich Albion lost on Friday at Huddersfield.
Yorkshire giants will be crowned champions if third placed Brent-ford fail to win on Saturday or they take a point on Sunday against Derby.
It has been sixteen years in the making and has finally been gotten.
They almost made the cut last season as they were shy of automatic promotion six points behind Sheffield United.
Then they lost to Derby County which was coached by now Chelsea manager Frank Lampard in the play off semi finals.
Owned by Italian businessman Andrea Radrizzani, the club managed to convince the Argentine coach to another season after last seasons drama.
This was even more surprising than when Bielsa was announced as coach of Championship club Leeds United.
Bielsa stayed and within two seasons has led The Whites to the Premier League since 2004 when then manager Eddie Gray took them to the championship.
Bielsa’s side have won 26 out of a possible 44 matches drawing 9 and losing the other 9.
They’ve scored 70 goals and conceding an impressive Division lowest of 34 goals.
Leeds skipper claimed that the club are finally back to where they belong in an interview with BBC Radio Leeds.
“It’s unbelievable and it’s still not properly sunk in,” he told BBC Radio Leeds
“Our club, our fans and our players have sacrificed so much – we’ve been in the doldrums for 16 years.
“We deserve it – we’ve been the best team all season on a consistent level and we’ve got the job done. We set out to get promoted and now we want to go and be champions and lift that trophy.”
Former Skipper Matteo Dominic who was in the side that reached the Champions League semi finals in 2001 had nothing but praise for the team.
“This is one of the best feelings I’ve ever had,” Matteo told Sky Sports.
“Bielsa and the team have been incredible. Everything they have done from start to finish has been done the right way.
“What Bielsa has brought to this football club has been outstanding. He’s got a bit of magic and you can see the passion in his body.
“He brings the best out of everyone and makes every player better. All credit to him and his staff.”
Leeds have kept 21 clean sheets in the Championship this season, their most in a single league campaign since 1973/74 under Don Revie (23).
The team has used just 17 different outfield players as starters in the Championship this season; the fewest of any side.
