According to a Sky Sports journalist, Leeds United are considering approaching Walter Mazzarri over their vacant manager’s role.
Garry Monk resigned earlier this morning(May 25), meaning that the Yorkshire club are on the search for a new manager, and Sky Sports’ Italy correspondent Gianluca Di Marzio has said that Leeds are interested in bringing in Walter Mazzarri.
Mazzarri was in charge of Watford for the previous year, but has now left the club following a poor season where they finished 17th in the Premier League.
Despite a poor season with Watford, he has a wealth of experience when it comes to management.
However, reports suggest that the Italian manager would not be interested in managing in the second tier of English football.
Clubs such as Crystal Palace and Europa League semi finalists Celta Vigo are said to be interested in the former Napoli and Inter Milan manager.
His time at Watford was the first job he has had outside of Italy, and it’s reported that he is looking for another job in England.
Of course, he is of the same nationality of Andrea Radrizzani, who completed his 100% takeover of Leeds United earlier this week.
Other managers with Sky Bet Championship experience have been linked with the vacancy at Elland Road.
Aitor Karanka is the bookies favourite, being offered out at odds on by several different bookmakers.
