Report: Leeds United to replace Neil Sullivan with Richard Hartis as goalkeeper coach

The former Manchester United goalie coach is currently at Cardiff City.

There has already been plenty of chop and change at Leeds United this summer, which is nothing new under the Massimo Cellino regime.

The club have appointed Uwe Rosler as head coach and it looks like Neil Redfearn is gone. Steve Thompson has confirmed he will not return to the club, despite only currently being suspended.

Now there has been a change in goalkeeping coach, as reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

It is reported that Neil Sullivan has been replaced as head goalkeeping coach at the club. The former Wimbledon, Doncaster and Leeds stopper has been in his current role since the summer but has now reverted to coaching the academy goalies once again.

He is set to be replaced in the role of head keeping coach by Richard Hartis.

Hartis never played football at a professional level, making him a rare breed in the goalkeeping coaching fraternity. He has however held this post at the likes of Manchester United, Molde and Cardiff City.

Now it seems Leeds have appointed a goalie coach, they might need some goalies for him to actually coach.

At the moment the club only have Marco Silvestri between the sticks, with Alex Cairns and Stuart Taylor released this summer.
