Leeds: Marcelo Gallardo latest to reject Elland Road manager’s job

Leeds: Marcelo Gallardo latest to reject Elland Road manager's job - Leeds United News

Leeds United target Marcelo Gallardo appears to have become the latest manager to turn down a move to Elland Road.

The Lowdown: Corberan and Iraola snub Leeds

The Whites have seemingly missed out on two of their top managerial targets in West Brom’s Carlos Corberan and Rayo Vallecano’s Andoni Iraola.

Former Whites assistant Corberan rejected an 18-month contract in favour of extending his stay at The Hawthorns, while one Spanish reporter suggested that Iraola turned down Leeds in favour of fulfilling his contract with Los Vallecanos.

The Latest: Gallardo also rejects Leeds

Gallardo, formerly of River Plate, was thought to be on Leeds’ four-man managerial shortlist, with Phil Hay stating that Victor Orta is an admirer of the 47-year-old.

ESPN journalist Jorge Baravalle has now said on Twitter that Gallardo was actually contacted by Leeds and received a proposal from Elland Road, but the Argentine didn’t consider a move and wants a return to management in the summer.

Raphinha in action for Leeds United

Leeds fans, do you remember how much Raphinha's move to Barcelona was worth?

The Verdict: Arne Slot or interim boss?

Leeds’ search for a new manager hasn’t exactly gone swimmingly, with three coaches now appearing to turn down the vacant position.

Feyenoord manager Arne Slot could be the Whites’ last option, with reports claiming that an approach has been made for the Dutchman.

Should that fail to materialise, then Andrea Radrizzani, the 49ers and Victor Orta may have to look down the route of an interim manager, something which has already been spoken about amongst the Elland Road hierarchy.
