English Premier League (EPL) Leeds United is about to sack its second head coach this season alone. Faced with the risk of being relegated, they plan to dismiss manager Harvey Gracia (53, Spain) less than three months after he was appointed.
The British media’Football Insider’ said on the 2nd (Korean time), “Leeds United will sack coach Gracia and general manager Victor Horta (44, Spain) within the next 24 hours.” The decision was made after discussion.”
Previously, Leeds United signed a contract until June 2024 while appointing Gracia as manager on February 22. He failed to recover from a long slump under the coaching system of Jesse March (49, USA), and also failed to rebound under the acting system of Michael Scubala (40, England), so he changed the command tower to bring about change.
안전놀이터 However, there was no effect of changing the director. Leeds United could not escape from sluggishness even under the Gracia manager system. Based on the actual EPL, they could not escape from the bottom ranks as they only won 3 wins (2 draws and 6 losses) during 11 matches. The gap with the current 20th place Southampton (24 points) is only 6 points, so they can be relegated at any time.
In the end, Leeds United’s leadership plans to resign in less than three months after appointing Gracia as they are driven to the crisis of ‘desperation’. Furthermore, they plan to hold general manager Orta, who has been with them since 2017, responsible for poor performance and dismiss him. Currently, coach Sam Allardyce (68, England) is being discussed as the next head coach.
Meanwhile, Leeds United have a rough schedule ahead. We meet Manchester City, who are leading the next round right now. After that, they face Newcastle United, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in turn. If they don’t pick up points from their four games, they are more likely to be relegated in three years since being promoted in 2020.
