Leeds United: Peacocks fans slam Kevin Blackwell following David Healy’s latest interview

Leeds United: Peacocks fans slam Kevin Blackwell following David Healy’s latest interview - Leeds United

Former manager Kevin Blackwell has received plenty of criticism from a large section of the Leeds United fan base, following David Healy’s comments to the Yorkshire Evening Post

Speaking to chief football writer Graham Smyth, the ex-Northern Irish international recalled his frustration with Blackwell’s tactics, noting: “to be honest the formation didn’t suit me as well as it could have done.

“Being a manager now I look back and the manager at the time had the nucleus of a good squad, good players, he wanted to pick the formation, which I was fine with.”

Healy concluded: “I found myself at times playing on the left wing or the right wing. I didn’t feel I was at my best.”

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

Having moved to Elland Road from Preston North End for £2.48m in 2004, the Manchester United academy graduate went on to score 29 goals in 117 appearances for the Whites, before being sold to Fulham when the Yorkshire outfit faced relegation and administration. The centre-forward won 95 caps for the Green and White Army, bagging 36 goals, and he finally hung up his boots in December 2013.

The 40-year-old is currently in charge of Premiership side Linfield after he was unveiled as the Blues manager all the way back in 2015.

Understandably, many supporters directed their ire at the “clueless” 61-year-old after Healy’s eyeopening comments, with one fan branding his team selection as “criminal,” and another suggesting he is a complete “tool.”
