Elland Road

Leeds United fans have a bad relationship with Jaap Stam, after their meetings with Reading this season.

Leeds United fans are fearful that Jaap Stam could become their next manager, as the Reading boss’s odds have shortened considerably in recent times.

Stam is currently the 5/1 third-favourite to take over at Leeds and replace Garry Monk with SkyBet.

And Whites supporters are desperately hoping that Stam is not placed in charge.

In truth, Leeds moving for Stam does seem unlikely, as the former Manchester United man has aggravated the Elland Road crowd this past season.

Stam made some disparaging remarks about Leeds, following both their matches against Reading.

At the moment Leeds’ search for a new manager in very unclear, with Andrea Radrizzani keeping potential candidates under wraps.

Leeds are expected to start interviewing managers in the coming weeks, as they edge closer to finding Garry Monk’s successor.
