Marcelo Bielsa offered no clues to his Athletic Bilbao future despite fans' pleas for the Argentine coach to remain after a 3-0 Copa del Rey final loss to Barcelona on Friday.

Athletic Bilbao fans chanted "Bielsa, stay on" at Vicente Calderon Stadium at the close, just over two weeks after the Basque side lost the Europa League final 3-0 to Atletico Madrid.
Bielsa said he would sit down with club bosses to discuss his future with a decision set to be taken by next week "in one sense or the other."
Athletic Bilbao beat Manchester United en route to the Europa League final but Bielsa says his planning against Barcelona failed.
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola encouraged Bielsa to stay, calling Athletic Bilbao's matches "some of the most marvelous we saw this year."
