Leeds United

Leeds supporters have reacted to their former manager's new role on social media.

It's over a year since Dave Hockaday's ill-fated spell as Leeds United boss. Many fans still can't believe it ever happened.

The 57-year-old has now moved on, though, being appointed Kidderminster's new manager on Friday night.

Ironically, it came on the same day Rotherham United hired another former Leeds coach in Neil Redfearn - giving the Elland Road faithful plenty to talk about on Twitter.

Naturally, there was a lot of reaction to Hockaday's Kidderminster appointment on social media. Most of it came from Leeds not Harriers fans.

And, naturally, a lot of that reaction was of a mocking nature. Indeed, Leeds supporters have memories of a specific kind when it comes to the 57-year-old. Memories that mainly involved wondering how on Earth Massimo Cellino decided to hire Hockaday, questioning what on Earth he was doing at the Yorkshire side, then pondering why on Earth Hockaday wasn't dismissed earlier.

Was he that bad? Yes.

Yet the more pertinent question is whether Hockaday can provide use for Kidderminster at a lower level than Championship football. But Leeds fans aren't convinced he'll be able to bounce back...
