Leeds’ nightmare June: Fail to appoint manager, more transfer disasters

Leeds United fans here in the Tavern are desperate to see improvements over the course of the summer, starting with the rest of this month. 

The Whites failed to make the most of a promising position towards the start of the season as they finished in thirteenth position after mounting an early promotion challenge.

Of course, appointing Paul Heckingbottom will go down as one of the biggest mistakes in the club’s recent history, so they’ll be desperate to not make a mistake on a similar level in the future.

June could turn out to be a nightmare month for the Whites as they continue to search for a new manager, with plenty of improvements still required.

Therefore, June could turn out to be one of the worst months in the club’s history if these TWO things happen…

Fail to appoint a new manager

Leeds United are currently searching for a new manager after relieving Paul Heckingbottom of his duties not so long ago.

The Whites have held further talks with ex-Argentina boss Marcelo Bielsa, but it is now understood that Leeds are facing competition from Sporting Lisbon to land the manager.

Failing to appoint a manager this month could condemn Leeds to another poor season next time out, as they’ll be forced to take part in a crucial part of pre-season without a potential long-term manager in charge.

Transfer disasters

The Whites haven’t been particularly effective in recent transfer windows as they keep on bringing in players from outside of England that haven’t necessarily proven themselves.

Indeed, the likes of Caleb Ekuban, Pawel Cibicki, Laurens De Bock, Jay-Roy Grot and Pierre-Michel Lasogga have all struggled since making the move to Elland Road.

So, Leeds will need to change their ways over the course of this month by looking at players that have proven themselves in England, otherwise they could be on course for an even worse season next time out.
