HYS: Should Claudio Ranieri replace Heckingbottom at Leeds?

Leeds fans were delighted about a report this week that suggested Paul Heckingbottom could leave the club, but should they grab Claudio Ranieri as his replacement?

Leeds had a strange season in 2017-18, as the campaign went from quite good to incredibly bad in a matter of weeks.

Thomas Christiansen’s side were looking in good shape to challenge for a playoff spot going into the Christmas period, but a torrid run of form cost the Dane his job.

Paul Heckingbottom arrived in February, and the underwhelming ex-Barnsley boss is now under plenty of pressure himself, after picking up just four wins in his tenure so far.

According to a report from the Mirror, owner Andrea Radrizzani is considering the 40 year-old’s future, and Leeds fans were excited yesterday when Paddy Power suspended betting on Claudio Ranieri taking over at Elland Road.

Ranieri is now the joint favourite to take over at 10/3, alongside Filippo Inzaghi, but the former Leicester boss would surely be the safer option due to his title winning experience in England.

So, Leeds fans, do you think Ranieri would be a good appointment? Or would you prefer someone else? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
