Well, this will create a bunch of rumours, won’t it?
In a response to a question about former Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri being linked to the head coach job at Leeds, Phil Hay said that he wasn’t sure about those links, but that another foreign coach had been mentioned.
different foreign coach has been mentioned to me. Not saying who because I don’t know if it’s got legs. As for Ranieri, honestly not sure.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) May 27, 2018
Earlier in the week, the Yorkshire Evening Post said that rumours about current Venezia boss Filippo Inzaghi coming to Leeds were unfounded, but does that mean that the rumours just got the identity of the Italian coach that is headed to Leeds wrong?
No one asked me, but I’m down for Clarence Seedorf, who was just sacked at Deportivo La Coruña. He had a decent season at Milan, coming in and rescuing them when they were mired in a terrible season and while he couldn’t work his magic at Deportivo, he’s forgotten more about playing football at a high level than most of the current squad will ever know.
On to the links.
