Leeds fans go wild on Twitter as Dave Hockaday leaves Kidderminster

Kidderminster Harriers have parted company with the former Leeds boss - prompting one key question from fans at Elland Road.

Dave Hockaday will forever be associated with Leeds United. Every time he is hired, fans will remember the time Massimo Cellino unveiled him at Elland Road. Every time he leaves a club, fans will remember the time Massimo Cellino fired him at Elland Road.

The fact he has left his job at Kidderminster following a spell that was only a couple of weeks longer than his time at Leeds perhaps says something about Hockaday. But it says more, in the eyes of many, about Cellino.

Hockaday may have been unfortunate at Kidderminster and, even if he did get every decision wrong at the club, it's still not necessarily his fault things at Leeds went so wrong.

Indeed, following his first sacking since his stint with the Whites, supporters have asked one key question on Twitter - how did he get the Leeds job in the first place?

The decision was so out of touch and looks like it has gone down in history for both United and Cellino. In fairness, the Yorkshire club's latest appointment, Steve Evans, looks a little more suited to the Championship than Hockaday.

But the memory of his time at Leeds will forever be etched in supporters' minds. Here's how fans have reacted on social media to Hockaday's Kidderminster departure:
