Leeds legend Gary McAllister is reported to be one of three candidates who are set to be interviewed for the vacant first-team coach job at Leeds United.

The former United player, who scored 45 goals in 294 appearances and was part of the famous ’92 title winning squad, also managed the club but was sacked after just 10 months at the club. Under McAllister, we played some very attractive football. At times it was the wrong way to play, like at Histon where we lost 1-0, we didn’t really have a plan b. He also picked some great talent including Luciano Becchio and Robert Snodgrass.

It was revealed early Friday morning that McAllister was a target for Leeds owner, Massimo Cellino. After being linked with Italian’s for so long Cellino seemingly confirmed that the next coach would be British. After we (@LeedsAllOver) questioned journalist, Simon Austin (@sport_simon) on Twitter, Austin said that McAllister is being interviewed this weekend.


Another journalist – Phil Hay from the YEP – also confirmed yesterday that David Hockaday “definitely is one of Cellino’s three candidates”. That leaves one other British coach. Other people linked recently include Reading coach Eamonn Dolan (6/1), Chris Hughton (4/1) and Neil Redfearn (12/1) who is the current United development squad manager.

Who do you want as United’s head coach? Personally, I want Gary McAllister. When he was here before we played some excellent stuff, and of course he’s a Leeds legend. Hockaday is very inexperienced and was sacked by Forest Green before, how would he be able to cope at a Championshop club?

  1. definitely mcallister, he plays a certain type of way which i feel would be good for the squad, especially if cellino brings in some new players that can adapt to his way of coaching. Onwards and Upwards hopefully with Mcallister. MOT

  2. Whoever comes should be on a moderate basic salary, with a bonus for getting in the playoffs and a much bigger bonus to get promotion outright + extra if champions. There l go dreaming again.

  3. Just a thought watching england why not Hoddle to be nxt coach his knowledge and tatical awareness his of the highest order
