Jack Otway of The Daily Express has name-checked Ronald Koeman as a possible candidate to take over the managerial reins at Leeds United.
The Lowdown: Three known targets…
It seems as if Marcelo Bielsa’s time in charge at Elland Road will come to an end after a 4-0 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.
Correct to part ways with Bielsa?
No, terrible decision!
Reports earlier this month suggested that the Whites are already identifying candidates to replace the Argentine in the summer, including Jesse Marsch, Ernesto Valverde and Carlos Corberan.
The former now looks likely to come in for Bielsa with 12 games to go, with Fabrizio Romano believing that an agreement with the 48-year-old is in the ‘final stages’.
The Latest: Koeman touted as potential Leeds candidate
Otway shared a story on The Daily Express on ‘Leeds board’s top four candidates to replace Bielsa’.
The first three were the already-linked Valverde, Marsch and Corberan, with Koeman the fourth and final inclusion in the report. The journalist admitted that a swoop for the Dutchman is ‘unlikely’ but labelled him ‘worthy of consideration’.
The Verdict: Avoid
Koeman has experience in the Premier League, but his last stint in the division with Everton didn’t exactly go to plan. He won just 19 of his 47 games in charge at Goodison Park before being sacked back in 2017.
Whoever Leeds bring in will have a hard act to follow after Bielsa, but following his recent spells at club level, Koeman could be one potential candidate to avoid.
