According to Skysport in Italy, Leeds have four candidates for the Head Coach job.
Leeds United have just sacked the manager. They’re in contact with Matias Almeyda, Marcelo Bielsa and Steve Bruce; also with Claudio Ranieri but he’s the most difficult name for them. Leeds will take a decision on next 2 days. @SkySportsNews

An interesting group of names. Bielsa is the favourite but it’s hard to be confident with him until the deal is signed. Steve Bruce has been mentioned previously and with Aston Villa suddenly being in all sorts of financial bother, they may be looking to cut costs. Bruce would be a solid option, but you can just imagine what would happen after a few losses given his Manchester United related past.
Almeyda is a wildcard to say the least, he has just stepped down as C.D. Guadalajara manager, he has also had spells at River Plate and Atlético Banfield in Argentina. Ranieri of course we have all heard about over the last week or so and as good as that would be, it doesn’t seem too likely at this stage.
Marcelo Bielsa is the name to watch, Adam Pope reported today that Angus Kinnear has actually been to Argentina in the last week, presumably to talk to Bielsa. Other names mentioned are Michael Laudrup, who did well at Swansea for a while and Víctor Sánchez del Amo, who was linked last summer.
Let us know who you want as the next Leeds boss!
