Next Leeds United manager – the contenders

After chalking up a win percentage of just 29.73%, Jesse Marsch has finally lost his job at Leeds United.

The club, despite spending in the excess of £100m on new players of the last six months, find themselves sitting just above the Premier League relegation spots on goal difference, having endured a horrid Christmas period under the guidance of Marsch.

Now it’s time for someone else to take the reins at the club, and we’ve assessed the candidates.

Yep, another Argentine manager. And another bloody good one too.

Gallardo was the River Plate manager for the best part of a decade, winning basically everything he can possibly win at the club twice over before walking away at the end of 2022.

It is probably time for a venture over to Europe to test himself, but it’s hard to imagine that Leeds United would be the club he’s been waiting to move to (no offence Leeds).

Every single time a team in the bottom half of the Premier League table sack their manager, Ange Postecoglu is inevitably linked.

Ange has worked wonders at Celtic in the last 18 months, making them one of the most exciting teams to watch in the UK and winning the league title in the process.

In a lot of ways this move makes quite…
