Bad boy footballer turned Hollywood star Vinnie Jones has played down a suggestion from a Leeds United fan asking if he would be up for managing the club later this season.

Jones told the Yorkshire Evening Post earlier this month he would potentially one day be interested in managing the Whites.

The Welshman played for Leeds between 1989 and 1990 and remains fondly remembered by supporters.

He has recently signed up for a Twitter account, and been interacting with fans of his former clubs.

Jones was asked if he would be interested in managing Leeds as soon as this season, with Massimo Cellino notorious for firing managers quickly, meaning new boss Garry Monk needs a good start.

And there is a very good reason why Jones will not be in the running if the Leeds job does become available... as he confirmed he has not even done his coaching badges yet.


Jones may not have badges, but he does still have his Leeds United tattoo which he got inked after helping them win promotion from the old Division 2.


He added that he wanted to see players wearing the shirt with pride this season for Garry Monk's sake, and urged club owner Massimo Cellino to start spending money.


Time to listen up Massimo...
