Reliable journalist provides update on Paul Heckingbottom



Paul Heckingbottom is expected at Elland Road over the course of this week for meetings with Leeds United’s hierarchy.

Leeds only moved to appoint Heckingbottom in February, but a testing spell at Elland Road has led to some speculation surrounding his future, with reports in April suggesting he could be fired.

Phil Hay from the Yorkshire Evening Post has provided an update on Heckingbottom’s role at Leeds, confirming that the club expect him at Elland Road for meetings this week, before he heads off on holiday.

Heckingbottom’s spell at Elland Road has only brought four victories so far, with Leeds losing eight of the 16 fixtures the 40-year-old has taken charge of.

The ex-Barnsley boss replaced Thomas Christiansen at Elland Road and was tasked with keeping alive Leeds’ play-off hopes, which were fading fast following a difficult start to 2018.

Leeds eventually finished the season in 13th, with two victories in their final three matches of the campaign.

The Verdict  

After such a sloppy start to life at Elland Road, there is bound to be speculation surrounding Heckingbottom’s future at Leeds.

However, for now, it looks like Andrea Radrizzani and Leeds’ board will keep patience with the former Barnsley boss.

If that is the case, Leeds’ summer planning needs to start and they have to first of all, get their summer transfer strategy right.
