Leeds United Warnock Bookies Favorite for Managers Job
The former Italian international led MK Dons to the League One play-offs before being lured away by West Bromwich Albion.In his only full season at The Hawthorns, Albion won automatic promotion to the Premier League.He is now on Andre Villas-Boas’s coaching staff at Stamford Bridge, meaning any return to the Championship is likely to involve a pay cut on his part.A further complication could be his links with SW6 given how reluctant Leeds supporters were to embrace another Chelsea old boy when Dennis Wise succeeded Kevin Blackwell in 2006. Other contenders for the role at this stage include former Leeds assistant manager Gus Poyet, currently at Brighton, former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan, a league winner with the club, and highly rated Huddersfield Town supremo boss Lee Clark.While internet and newspaper rumors are also linking BBC pundit Alan Shearer with the role however the former Newcastle United’s lack of experience, not to mention his comfort on the television couch could play against him.
