David Haigh has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Claudio Ranieri would be a good managerial appointment for Leeds United.

Leeds are on the lookout for a new manager following the resignation of Garry Monk from his position this week.

Ranieri is without a managerial job at the moment, having been dismissed by Leicester City in February 2017.

The former Chelsea boss guided Leicester to the Premier League title during the 2015-16 season.

Former Leeds managing director Haigh has suggested on Twitter that Ranieri would be a good managerial appointment for the Whites.

Leeds fans have also taken to Twitter to have their say whether or not the Italian tactician should be appointed the the West Yorkshire club’s manager.

Ranieri would be a superb appointment - a blockbuster appointment, in fact - and Leeds would also be a good club for him.

The Italian tactician is a very good manager, and having someone like him in charge will certainly make Leeds one of the top contenders for the Championship playoffs next season.
