‘You’re getting me all excited now’ – Leeds fans delighted over managerial update

The Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story in The Yorkshire Evening Post that claims Leeds could be set to sack Paul Heckingbottom and look for a new manager as rumours circle that Andrea Radrizzani wants to go foreign. A number of names have been linked with the job such as Filippo Inzaghi, Michael Laudrup and Claudio Ranieri.

Paul Heckingbottom left Barnsley for Leeds in February, replacing Thomas Christensen who was sacked after The Whites 4-1 loss away at Cardiff. The Elland Road faithful were hoping that last season would have brought promotion with it, although it turned out to be yet another disappointing campaign as Leeds fell to a 13th place finish, despite hanging onto a play-off place at the turn of the year.

If the club are to bring a new manager in, the fans will want an assurance that the new man will both have funds to spend in the transfer market and that the new man will be given at least a full season in charge. All of the discussed candidates have the credentials to be a success at the Yorkshire club, however, it remains to be seen how the club will look to move forward as they aim to end their 14 year stay outside of the top-flight.
