Redfearn tipped to become next permanent Leeds boss

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United caretaker boss Neil Redfearn has been tipped to officially be appointed as the club's next permanent manager.

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.
