Former Leeds United boss Neil Warnock admits he could return to Yorkshire, but it now looks unlikely

Team Lotus Unveil QPR Sponsorship With Neil Warnock

The former Crystal Palace boss had been linked with a director of football role at Bradford City.

Neil Warnock has recently been linked with a return to Yorkshire to work with Bradford City.

Warnock has previously had a stint in charge at Leeds United between February 2012 and April 2013. His time at Elland Road was fairly unpopular and unsuccessful, with the club suffering their worst ever home defeat, 7-3 v Nottingham Forest, whilst he was in charge.

As well as Leeds the 66-year-old is a Sheffield boy, who is perhaps most famous for managing Sheffield United for eight years.

He is said to be close with Gianni Paladini, who has recently been linked with a takeover at Valley Parade. The two worked together at QPR and Warnock was being linked with a director of football role at the club.

He told the Telegraph and Argus this week that he would indeed be keen on a move to Bradford this summer:

“It’s something you never know about. I do my media stuff on the radio and TV at the moment and enjoy that but it’s something I would always consider – and I don't mean just at Bradford – because I don’t want to do anything full time.

“I’m not committing myself to anything but you can never say never.”

However, the former Leeds United man is not likely to be heading there now.

Paladini's exclusivity period for buying the club has come to an end, with no deal being made. As reported by the Yorkshire Post the Bantams will now continue under their current ownership structure for the foreseeable future.

Meaning little chance of Warnock heading back to Yorkshire just yet. Unless, of course, Massimo Cellino gives him the director of football role at Elland Road.

Shudders.
