Leeds United appointed the former QPR manager Neil Warnock in the hope of getting to the Premier league even through the play-offs. Warnock has said numerous times that he will be prepared to leave Leeds United if the club do not achieve this objective. It seems that Leeds United will not be able to finish even in the play-offs this season. As a result, the former Sheffield United and QPR manager has said that he has spoken with the club about his possible successors. Leeds have failed to win any of their last four matches. As a result, they are 10th in the championship table now.
Further, there is a seven point gap that the club needs to make up in the remaining few matches of the championship in order to finish in the top six. Only the top six clubs can think about promotion at the end of the regular season. Since taking over last February, Warnock has overseen 60 Leeds United matches. They have managed to win 23 and lose 22 matches during this period. Warnock has admitted that the club is running out of games in their hopes of finishing in the top six. He has pointed to the lack of aspects of quality and pace as the main reasons for their inability to finish in the top six.
“Once we’re out of contention they know I won’t be having another year in the Championship. We’ve spoken about my successor, about people coming in if mathematically it’s impossible to get into the play-offs. Realistically we’re running out of games and [the owners] GFH know my situation, I speak to them on a regular basis. I’d like to think that I’d have an input on that because the job we’ve done over the last 12 months, the staff and I, I think is fantastic,” said Warnock.
