Simon Grayson has ruled himself out of a second spell in charge at Leeds United, as the search continues for a new manager at the West Yorkshire club.
Grayson has been tipped as one of the front-runners by the bookies, but after comments made by Grayson today, it’s clear that the current Preston boss will not be leaving to have a second bite of the cherry at Leeds United.
At a press conference this morning, Grayson said,
“Everybody knows about my affiliation with Leeds and I enjoyed my time there, but I am happy at Preston.”
He went on to say,
“Preston can’t do enough for me at this moment in time. They give me the opportunity to do what we are doing; we have got a good squad together and I have a real desire to get this team to the next level.”
Grayson was a player for the Whites between 1988 and 1992, however, he only made 2 appearances. He made a return to Elland Road as a manager between 2008 and 2012.
“The reports are wide of the mark; people are going to speculate and put two and two together, but the club have had no approach, I’ve had no approach and that’s the end of the matter.”
