Former Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa has been named Uruguay’s national team coach.
The Argentine, 67, has been unemployed since the Elland Road club fired him in February 2022.
In recent months, he held negotiations with both Bournemouth and Everton about their vacant management roles.
Champions twice over Uruguay failed to advance from their World Cup group in Qatar.
Bielsa joined Leeds in 2018 and is still revered by the club’s fans after supervising the club’s 16-year hiatus from the Premier League.
