According to Skybet, the new favourite for the Leeds job is Victor Sanchez. He came from nowhere to be head of the betting and many are wishing he hadn’t at all. Sanchez has been sacked three times in a year, won 18 of 81 games as manager with a 22% win ratio. He’s managed some big clubs in Deportivo, Olympiacos and Betis, but he hasn’t succeeded at any of them. He was a good player in Spain, playing for Real Madrid and Deportivo mainly, though that talent doesn’t seem to have translated to management. He never played for an English team, so I’m not sure where the idea of him being Leeds manager has come from and I hope it’s a false link. There’s been many names come to the top of the betting for the Leeds job but Sanchez is the only one who had not been rumoured before hand, meaning someone must have put large money on it.
Garry Monk had his Middlesbrough press conference this morning, I won’t mention what he said because I really think we need to move on, it would help if we had a manager. You would hope Radrizzani is taking his time getting a good name, that name not being Sanchez would be a good start.
