McDermott faces the sack

All club staff including McDermott are being called to an emergency meeting with club owner Massimo Cellino on Monday, and the former Reading manager’s job is in the balance,

Cellino is expected to make drastic cuts across the club by axing people from their jobs at the Elland Road outfit.

The Leeds United players have had to cut their summer holidays short to attend the emergency meeting on Monday, which has left numerous players unhappy with the Italian owner.

Benito Carbone, the former Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday forward, was appointed as a football consultant earlier this month to advise the board, and could be named as McDermott’s successor.

“Believe me, at this club, there are a lot of big, big problems,” said Carbone. “We’re trying to sort every single one out before the season starts, sort every problem for every single manager, coach and player because they need to be free. They must only think about playing football. This is the only thing we must do.”
