According to journalist Alan Nixon, Paul Heckingbottom’s status as Leeds’ head coach is still under review and largely dependant on whether they can bring in a foreign manager. That foreign manager is believed, although not confirmed, to be Claudio Ranieri, who is looking for a return to English football after leaving Nantes.
Although Ranieri doesn’t have any experience in the Championship, it would be hard to find faults with a manager who achieved the greatest feat in Premier League history, making Leicester City Champions.
It is well-known that Leeds and Heckingbottom had many meetings after the season ended, but on the football side of things, Leeds have been very quiet. Although they have no obligation to publicly back Heckingbottom, it does seem like his future in uncertain.
Let us know what you think, would you like Ranieri to be the next Leeds manager?
