Leeds United have begun the interview process in order to find the manager to take over from Jesse Marsch, with every candidate currently in a job elsewhere.

Another busy week looms for Leeds United with a midweek trip to Manchester United enough to whet the appetite for the fanbase.

However, the search for a new manager is also taking up plenty of the Elland Road discussion at the moment, with Leeds looking to make a swift appointment.

The identity of the man Leeds look to appoint remains unclear, with a host of names already being linked through various outlets to the club.

Now, the YEP’s Joe Donnohue has revealed that the interviewing process has begun to find a new manager, with Leeds looking to get an appointment sorted before Sunday’s home clash with Manchester United:

While names aren’t mentioned here, it is important to point out that every candidate in the frame at the moment is currently in a job elsewhere.

The likes of Andoni Iraola, Ange Postecoglou, and Carlos Corberan have all been linked, and would fall into this category.

The pool of managers out of a job has shrunk in the last few months with other Premier League clubs doing well to snap up any available managers.

However, our best options were always going to be managers still in jobs at other clubs.

The likes of Iraola and Postecoglou won’t be easy appointments if they are the ones that Leeds look to target, given their current successes at Rayo Vallecano and Celtic respectively.
