Dave Hockaday's current CEO has a message for Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino

The former Leeds boss spoke about a potential return to Elland Road recently.

Leeds United have worked their way through plenty of managers recently. The current boss is Steve Evans but Brian McDermott, Neil Redfearn and Uwe Rosler have been and gone in that time - as has Dave Hockaday.

The inexperienced first-team coach struggled early on at Leeds – as was to be expected by everyone it seems except Massimo Cellino.

Hockaday had no experience of leading a team the size of Leeds United and they were doomed to failure.

After six games in charge, he was sacked, clearly not the gamble Cellino had hoped he would be.

He got back into the game when appointed Kidderminster Harriers manager in October.

He caught the eye recently by telling The Sun that he would "crawl over broken glass" to work at Elland Road again.

Those comments, coupled with Kidderminster's continued poor form saw him tentatively linked with a move away from the club recently.

But the Kidderminster chief executive has a message for Cellino. Colin Gordon told the BBC this week:

"He's under agreement to be here until the end of the season.

"That's what we expect him to do. It was an interview that had been done probably a few weeks previously and, combined with Saturday's result that made it a perfect storm.

"Mr Cellino can do whatever he wants and invariably he does, but I've known Dave Hockaday for 30 years and I'm sure he's got a more favourable working relationship with me.

"He's head coach. Deal with it. You still have to turn up do the best you can for the group of players and hope it's enough to win football matches."

Of course it would not be known where exactly Cellino would want to employ Hockaday if he took him back at Leeds United if he did return.

However it looks like Hockaday will be sticking with Kidderminster for the time being.
