Neil WarnockFollowing Leeds United’s defeat to Huddersfield Town, a result which effectively ended any play-off chances the Whites had this season, Neil Warnock told fans that he’s already recommended candidates to replace him as manager.

The Leeds United manager said he’s told owners GFH Capital that they should move to replace him once Leeds United’s chances of a play-off finish are gone, thus allowing a new manager time to assess the squad properly before the 2013/14 campaign begins.

Warnock’s admission comes at an interesting time after Nigel Adkins began arbitration proceedings with former employer Southampton, thus leaving the Leeds United’s fans number one choice for manager free to take up new employment.

Amongst the other names on the bookies shortlist is former Assistant Manager Gus Poyet, controversial madman Paolo Di Canio and former captain, Richard Naylor.
