Leeds United owner offers former manager route back into club

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has offer former manager David O’Leary the chance to get back in the mix of things at Elland Road, with the Italian owner inviting the Irishman to attend some matches in the near future.

In a report by The Times, O’Leary revealed that the Leeds United owner had offered him the chance to come to Elland Road to see the current crop of players compete in the Championship, and it is something O’Leary is going to seize with both hands.

O’Leary commented that he was ‘looking forward to taking in a few games’ and also cited his own run at Leeds manager, stating he ‘must have done ok’ following a five year spell in the manager’s hotseat at Elland Road.

Leeds fans will have some fond memories of O’Leary from the early 2000s, when the former Arsenal and Ireland defender led the Whites to the Champions League semi-finals in a historic run which the club have since failed to even come to close to matching. O’Leary was reponsible for managing a star studded team containing the likes of Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka, and Rio Ferdinand.

However, his time with the club ended in misery, while a three year spell with Aston Villa was unsuccessful, leaving O’Leary out of the game ever since.

Leeds fans, what do you think to this? Is this a way back in for O’Leary? Let us know!
