Biesla has claimed that the club failed to sign any of the 7 players that were identified as transfer targets by him.
The club also let go of 18 players, which didn’t go down very well for the former Argentina coach.
“After four weeks working together with you, we could not sign any of the seven additions in the work program expressly approved by the President Claudio Lotito,” Bielsa’s statement read, written from his native Rosario in Argentina.
“We also take into account the departure of 18 players who were involved in the previous season.
