A fortunate or difficult dilemma for the next Leeds boss?

Elland Road pitchside

The next Leeds United manager will have a very big squad of players to choose from.

Whoever Massimo Cellino appoints as the next permanent boss of Leeds United, that individual is going to be in a fortunate position.

That position relates to the strength of the Leeds squad, which has been assembled for this season and the fact that the Championship giants could field two different elevens with plenty of subs left over.

The aim for Leeds is promotion back into the Premier League by the end of the season and it’s important they have an evidently strong set of players available.

The Championship season is long, difficult and the division is one of the most competitive in Europe. Add to the mix the domestic cup tournaments that Leeds will take part in and the number of games the club plays over the course of the season quickly piles up.

Many sides would love to have the squad depth available at Leeds but the trick for the new boss will be to find a combination of the best eleven players to secure results in the league on a consistent basis.
