Reportedly, Former Argentina and Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa has agreed to assume the Uruguay national team position.
After departing from Leeds United in February 2022 due to a string of unsatisfactory outcomes, the Argentine has remained unaffiliated for more than a year.
Nevertheless, according to Cesar Luis Merlo, a reporter for TYC, the coach has committed to leading the Uruguay national team, signifying his imminent comeback to the world of management.
According to the report, he has accepted a two-year deal to serve as the head coach until the World Cup qualifiers in September 2025, and negotiations are underway to determine if the contract should be prolonged for the 2026 World Cup, which will take place in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Bielsa will be assuming his third role as an international manager, having previously coached Argentina and Chile.
In 1998, he became the head coach of the Albiceleste and led them to win the gold medal at the Summer Olympics in 2004.
Later, in 2007, he took on the position of head coach for Chile and oversaw 51 games during his tenure, which concluded in 2011.
When he flew to England to meet with Everton, there were rumors linking Bielsa to a return to the Premier League, but he eventually turned down the proposal.
In contrast, discussions with Uruguay are almost complete, and an announcement may be disclosed in the coming days.
