Neil Warnock & Leeds United discuss possible successor

 

Leeds United manager Neil Warnock says he has spoken to the club about his possible successor.

Warnock, whose side lost 2-1 at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, has made no secret of his plans to leave if Leeds do not reach the Premier League.

"Once we're out of contention they know I won't be having another year in the Championship," he said.

"We've spoken about my successor, about people coming in if mathematically it's impossible to get into the play-offs."

Leeds, who are without a win in their last four matches, are now 10th and seven points adrift of the Championship play-offs.

The former Sheffield United and QPR boss took over at Elland Road last February and has had 60 games in charge, winning 23 and losing 22.

"Realistically we're running out of games and [the owners] GFH know my situation, I speak to them on a regular basis," the 64-year-old said.

"I'd like to think that I'd have an input on that because the job we've done over the last 12 months, the staff and I, I think is fantastic.

"Yes I'm frustrated because we just lack that bit of quality, a bit of midfield creativity and a bit of pace.

"We've sorted everything else out, but haven't been able to sort that out and it catches up with you."
