Sam Allardyce set to leave Leeds after relegation

Leeds United coach Sam Allardyce is set to part ways with the club following their unfortunate relegation from the highly competitive Premier League.

According to a report by The Telegraph, Allardyce engaged in discussions about his future with Angus Kinnear, the CEO of Leeds United, ultimately leading to the mutual agreement that he would not continue as the head coach.

This decision comes merely weeks after Allardyce assumed the managerial position on May 3, replacing Javi Gracia. At the time of his appointment, Leeds United found themselves in the 17th spot on the Premier League table.

However, their fortunes took a turn for the worse under Allardyce’s guidance, and they suffered relegation after acquiring a meager single point from the four matches played during his brief tenure.

With Allardyce’s departure imminent, Leeds United must now embark on the search for a new manager capable of steering the club out of the Championship and back into the highly coveted English top-flight.

In addition to finding a new manager, they may also need to fill the role of a director of football, as Victor Orta left his position within the club mid-season.

Furthermore, Leeds United finds itself amidst a potential takeover, which suggests a significant period of transformation as they strive to regain their status among the elite clubs in the country.

This impending change in ownership hints at a determined effort to secure a prosperous future and ultimately return to the Premier League.
