He claimed it gave him a better vantage point than the dugout, but Leeds officials turned down several offers to brand it. 

The club have also started selling official £80 buckets as they seek to cash in on its huge popularity.  

Of the bucket, Bielsa said last season:’You want me to say more about it than what it is. It’s just a bucket, a comfortable bucket. I have nothing to add.’

They next travel to Stoke on Saturday as they bid to go one better and secure promotion this campaign.
