Leeds United fans here in the Tavern will be praying that their side can secure promotion to the Premier League next season, as anything less will be seen as a disaster.
The Whites finished the 2017/18 campaign in 13th position after struggling to ensure consistency throughout. Indeed, Paul Heckingbottom will be pleased with how his side managed to finish the season but there’s no doubt that they could have done better, as Leeds were still in with a chance of securing a play-off place when the Englishman took over.
However, Paul Heckingbottom did manage to secure couple of wins in Leeds’ last few Championship fixtures, which may just have earned him a little more respect from the club’s owner Andrea Radrizzani. So, the Italian businessman may look to reward Heckingbottom with a marquee signing this summer, as the Whites will need all the help they can get to ensure promotion next season.
Therefore, here’s who our local punters think Radrizzani should reward Heckingbottom with…
Leeds United should look to take a leaf out of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ book next season by bringing a promising Portuguese player to the Championship after seeing how effective they have been this season.
And, it looks as if Diogo Goncalves has all the makings of a future star as he has enjoyed his breakthrough season at current club Benfica.
Indeed, the 21-year-old can offer an incredible dribbling ability and an electrifying amount of pace on the flanks, which would definitely benefit a Leeds United side that love to make use of their wide men.
