LEEDS UNITED fans were camped outside manager Marcelo Bielsa’s Yorkshire home to celebrate promotion.
And the Argentine was videoed elbow-bumping happy supporters – as he was serenaded by jubilant fans.

Bielsa is clearly adored by Whites fans.
Scores stood outside his home and with social distancing caused by the coronavirus pandemic, he was happy to greet them in the socially-acceptable way.
He also posed for photographs with young fans.
Having taken Leeds back to the Premier League after 16 years away, he will be even more loved.
Leeds’ promotion was confirmed when rivals West Brom lost to Huddersfield on Friday night.

It kick-started huge scenes of celebration in and around Elland Road.
Fans flocked to the stadium and spent hours singing and partying to mark their long-awaited return to the Premier League.
Bielsa was appointed two years ago.
The Yorkshiremen looked set to go up last season until a late collapse.
They eventually lost to Derby in the play-offs.
But they can get revenge by beating the Rams tomorrow and wrapping up the title.
And after sealing promotion, the South American is clearly a hero for Leeds supporters.
The 64-year-old will want to capture the title as soon as possible.
He can then turn his attention to the summer spending to make sure the Whites can compete in the top flight.
But, even if Leeds miss out on the title, the quirky and slightly eccentric Argentine – who likes to sit on a blue bucket at matches – has a place in the hearts of all Whites fans.
