Nigel Pearson is supposedly keen on the Leeds United manager’s job, according to journalist Ben Jacobs.
The 54-year-old who is currently manager of Belgian outfit OH Leuven has vast experience of managing in the Championship, having won the Championship title with Leicester City during his time at the Foxes.
Would Pearson be a good appointment for Leeds?
It’d be a bit of a shock.
Pearson is a decent manager and got a good tune out of Leicester City at times but I don’t know if he fits Leeds.
That Foxes side was different to this Leeds one and I’d be intrigued to see how Pearson did.
It’s tough to call whether Pearson would be a good appointment.
He was poor at Derby, but took Leicester up, so it could certainly go one way or the other.
Pearson could bring a lot of things that Christiansen didn’t, but I’d question his willingness to work under Radrizzani and Orta, who appear to be making the signings at Elland Road.
He’d be an intriguing appointment, but not one I can see happening.
He wouldn’t take any nonsense and I think he’d be a solid appointment.
He can get a team promoted and he can get them back to basics.
His no-nonsense approach would go down well with the Leeds fans and I think if he came in now, Leeds would have a fair chance of being in the promotion push next season.
