Cellino Confirms No Leeds Coach Appointment Imminent

Massimo Cellino has confirmed to Adam Pope of BBC Radio Leeds that there is no appointment for the new head coach of Leeds United on the immediate horizon.

Cellino suggested that the appointment would not be forthcoming when he said that Neil Redfearn would be dealing with preparing the side for the Birmingham City match. Redfearn, who is in caretaker charge of the club, won his only game so far, beating Bolton 1-0.

Despite this, there has been consistent fluctuations in the betting for the new head coach at the Elland Road club, and there have been suggestions today that Steve Clarke was on the cusp of being put in charge of the side.

This, however, has turned out not to be true, and in fact, the extensive interest in the role seems to be hindering Cellino’s decision making. A spate of applicants has seemingly slowed down the choice, with Oscar Garcia, his preferred coach, having joined Watford.

Cellino dispensed with David Hockaday’s services after only a few months in charge.
