Report: Leeds United offer manager's job to Giuseppe Iachini

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United are said to be looking for a new manager to replace Steve Evans.

According to a report on Italian website Tuttomercatoweb, Leeds United are hoping to appoint Giuseppe Iachini as their next manager.

Current Leeds boss Steve Evans’ contract expires in the coming weeks, and he is not expected to be offered a new deal.

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino is reportedly not convinced Evans is the right man to take the club forward, and he sees Iachini as a better fit.

Iachini’s entire managerial career to date has been spent in Italy, where he has managed the likes of Cesena, Sampdoria and Siena.

Iachini’s latest job came at Palermo, but he was sacked within a month of taking over there.

The report on Tuttomercatoweb also claims that Leeds are keen on Ivan Juric, but do not hold out much hope of convincing the Croatian to join.

Juric is reportedly likely to take the Genoa job, with Cellino being forced to look elsewhere.

The favourite to take over at Leeds still remains as Oldham Athletic boss John Sheridan, while Karl Robinson’s odds have shortened dramatically today.
