Vinnie Jones has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he hopes to become the Leeds United manager one day.

The former Wales international midfielder played for Leeds between 1989 and 1990, helping the Whites win the Football League Second Division title.

Jones is now a well-known Hollywood actor, having featured in movies such as Gone in 60 Seconds, Mean Machine and X-Men: The Last Stand.

The former Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers midfielder has revealed that he harbours hopes of managing Leeds in the future.

“I have written two autobiographies, I have brought an album out, I have had a single out, I have played in the Euro Qualifiers, I have played international football, I have won the FA Cup, I was assistant manager at QPR and that is the only one thing at the back of my mind that I have not done,” Jones told The Yorkshire Evening Post.

“To be manager of Leeds would be a fairytale but the one thing that slipped my grasp was being a manager - you cannot do everything.”

Jones was a hard and tough footballer, and he plays similar roles in movies.

It is hard to see the Welshman take charge of any football club, but perhaps his dream of managing Leeds could come true in the future.

Leeds do not need a head coach at the moment, as the West Yorkshire outfit recently appointed Garry Monk as their new boss following the departure of Steve Evans.

The Whites are playing in the Championship at the moment and have not featured in the Premier League since 2004.

The West Yorkshire outfit will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship next season.
