The Express this morning claim that GFH have already started to sound out Nigel Adkins as a potential replacement for under-fire Leeds United manager, Neil Warnock.
Controversially sacked by Southampton last month, Adkins would appear to meet the criteria Salem Patel laid out in his interview with David Conn earlier this week.
“When Neil goes we will look to appoint a young manager who will particularly work to build the young players into great players for the club.”
At 47 years old, Adkins is 17 years Neil Warnock’s junior and an infant by managerial standards. He plays the kind of attractive passing football most Leeds United fans have said they’d like to see and has a strong track record of developing youth players.
It all fits together so well, it makes you wonder whether the Express actually have a source for this or whether they’ve taken a little bit of a leap in their article and are simply pointing out an obvious and likely target.
