Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern could be preparing for some big news this summer as a key figure is set to return to the club.
Paul Heckingbottom’s future has remained unclear during his time at Elland Road, and had tough discussions behind the scenes with owner Andrea Radrizzani before he and his family went on holiday earlier this month.
However, the former Barnsley manager will be back in the coming days and talks are believed to resume, with the Italian facing a tough decision on whether the current Whites boss is the man to guide them to the Premier League.
And, according to a report in Leeds Live, the board are thought to be considering a decision about Heckingbottom’s future in the coming days, with rumours continuing to circulate about high-profile men being linked with the role.
And this update is likely to intrigue our resident Leeds fans in the Tavern, many of whom are unconvinced by Heckingbottom’s ability, and as such would like to see the club make a change sooner rather than later.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Leeds locals in the Tavern will be pleased that the board are set to make a decision on the manager’s future in the near future, as they will want to look ahead to their recruitment drive the rest of the summer.
Heckingbottom will want to prove he has what it takes to be the main man at Elland Road, yet four wins in 16 matches did not fill many in the bar with the confidence required.
For the good of the club, a decision regardless of the outcome will need to be made in the coming days so they can put it behind them and get their footballing concerns sorted before the start of the Championship campaign.
Leeds fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
