Leeds: Angus Kinnear resign claim emerges -Leeds United

Leeds United chief executive Angus Kinnear will resign at the end of the current campaign, Leeds Radar have reported.

The Lowdown: Bielsa sacking

The Whites officially parted ways with Marcelo Bielsa on Sunday morning, less than 24 hours on from a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham.

Correct to part ways with Bielsa?

Kinnear and his fellow Leeds officials didn’t waste any time in bringing in a replacement, with Jesse Marsch announced as the Argentine’s successor on Monday evening. Hours before Marsch was officially appointed, though, a claim emerged regarding Kinnear, who has been present at Elland Road since 2017.

The Latest: Kinnear claim

Leeds Radar posted on Twitter regarding the Whites chief, suggesting that he is set to leave the club once the season comes to a close, stating: “Kinnear will resign at the end of the season according to insider sources.”

The Transfer Tavern contacted Leeds Radar about their information, and were told it came directly from a club employee.

The Verdict: 49ers influence?

The investment arm of the San Francisco 49ers have a deal in place to buy Leeds for more than £400m by January 2024, so this claim could be a case of the Americans looking to take control in the boardroom.

They now have Marsch installed as manager and appear keen on USA international Brenden Aaronson after making two bids for the midfielder in January.

Therefore, it wouldn’t come as a major shock if Kinnear was to call time on his Elland Road tenure over the coming months, leaving the 49ers to possibly install their own chief executive in the process.

In other news, Leeds could sign one player this summer, according to a journalist. Find out who it is here.
