Journalist Pete O’Rourke believes Leeds United will not want to lose chief executive Angus Kinnear, GiveMeSport report.
The Lowdown: Resign claims
It has been a period of change at Elland Road in recent weeks, with Jesse Marsch coming in to replace Marcelo Bielsa as head coach.
Will Marsch keep Leeds up?
Yes, I still have faith!
No, we are finished!
There could well be more exits to come behind the scenes, with insider sources at the club suggesting Kinnear will resign at the end of the season.
The Latest: O’Rourke’s comments
Talking to GiveMeSport regarding Kinnear after the resignation claims, O’Rourke had this to say.
“Angus Kinnear has done a good job in the background at Leeds United, so they wouldn’t want to lose him as well as Bielsa in a matter of months.
“Maybe that might point to more influence from the 49ers and the American side of things as well.”
The Verdict: Would be a blow
Phil Hay has previously claimed that the San Francisco 49ers’ want to keep Kinnear and Orta on board after they have taken full control, ruling out O’Rourke’s claim regarding American influence.
Kinnear has played his part in transforming the Whites from a mid-table Championship club to a Premier League side off the field, along with Orta, owner Andrea Radrizzani and Bielsa.
He’s also highly thought of by the 49ers’, so should he resign over the coming months, it would prove to be a big blow going forward, especially as we are unsure what division Leeds will be playing in next season.
