There is a sense of anticipation at Leeds United ahead of the new Sky Bet Championship season.
They have a new owner, new backroom staff, a number of players being linked with a move to the club.
But one thing they are missing is a manager. And they’ve been without a man in charge for two weeks now following the resignation of former boss Garry Monk.
Leeds United supporters are beginning to get impatient waiting for the appointment, but the Whites owner Radrizzani has confirmed that they are set to talk to candidates in this coming week.
However, one man that Andrea Radrizzani will not be talking to is someone who is reported to have been his first choice following the immediate resignation of Monk.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reports that Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner was Radrizzani’s ideal man, and the Italian was desperate to see the German in charge at Elland Road next season.
Of course, this was quickly put to bed when the Terriers secured their promotion to the Premier League just four days after Monk departed the club.
David Wagner has since agreed a new deal with the newly promoted club, and is beginning to prepare for life in the top flight.
So for Leeds United, the search goes on. With less than two months until the start of the Sky Bet Championship season, they need to bring a new man in soon so that he has the time to make his mark on the squad, and get as much business done as he can.
