Leeds United: Warnock all but resigns on Yorkshire Radio

Neil Warnock has just stated on Yorkshire Radio that he does not want to be in charge next weekend for the match against Charlton.

Going only a step below resigning outright, the incumbent boss stated that it was best for Leeds United to appoint someone as manager temporarily until the end of the season, waiting until the summer to appoint the correct man.

Warnock, who faced a huge amount of vitriol from the stands at Elland Road, was referred to as ‘the one season wonder’ by the hosts of the match day program.

It seems unlikely he will be in charge for the Charlton Athletic game. He has since recommended that Gwyn Williams, technical director at the club, be made assistant to Neil Redfearn, who should be placed in charge until the end of the season. Redfearn, of course, was the caretaker prior to Warnock’s appointment.

With Leeds facing the concept of relegation more noticeably than any notion of promotion, an appointment needs to be made rapidly, because on the back of Warnock’s interview, it is clear that the situation at the club is not ideal. With two wins probably needed to confirm Leeds’s status as a Championship side, the club needs the boost of a new man in charge.

  1. He has done well considering the tosser that owned the club , and the new sh”t owners . If only we kept Beccio and maybe bought a decent midfielder , things could have been very different. I fully expected us to be in a relegation battle all season. Well done Neil , and good luck !

    1. the football under Warnock has been terrible , bar a few games ( 3 ) and they were in the cup. Warnock tactics were terrible , his team selections were terrible . he picks the team/tactics not the owners .

  2. Two questions. 1. Is a five point cushion enough to guarantee survival with an untested manager and player morale at rock bottom? 2. Can Paddy Kenny operate a tractor?

  3. Good luck Neil Warnock – you never had the backing from the board. They did not keep their promises and you had to steal, beg and borrow to put a team together! Despite all of that you stuck with the task and tried in vain to do the impossible with the resources at your disposal. You never got your wide man, striker or gifted mid-field player. Yesterday, Pearce just showed how out of his depth he is at this level! Enjoy your retirement and dwell on your success and not THEIR failure!!
