Isn't an official appointment with Redfearn but don't rule it out. Cellino feels his current options for head coach aren't better than NR— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) September 3, 2014
Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino has confirmed that Neil Redfearn will take temporary charge of the team until he makes a decision over the side’s next permanent boss.
Cellino has admitted that he’s confused as several coaches continuously call him about the position, but Redfearn has been tipped to take the job on a permanent basis.
It’s a great opportunity for the man previously tasked with developing the next generation of Leeds stars at Elland Road and if he performs, he could be awarded the role on a permanent basis.
Redfearn should also take comfort from the idea (according to Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post) that he’s considered a more talented coach by the owner than some of the individuals to have been enquiring about the job.
Refearn’s first match in temporary charge of the Championship giants will be on September 13 with the trip to Birmingham City.
Redfearn still in caretaker charge. Cellino has been seriously considering him for the head coach's job since missing out on Oscar Garcia.— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) September 4, 2014
