Leeds look set to keep faith with manager Paul Heckingbottom this summer – but would Carlos Carvalhal be a better fit?
If it were up to Leeds fans, Paul Heckingbottom would have left the club just moments after their final day win over QPR.
While some fans appreciate that the ex-Barnsley man has taken on an injury-hit squad severely lacking in quality, most can’t overlook the fact that his new manager bounce actually had the opposite effect, damaging both the results and performances.
Fans called for Mick McCarthy to take over when he left Ipswich, and they’re now pondering whether they should make a move for Carlos Carvalhal.
The 52 year-old former Sheffield Wednesday man failed to keep Swansea in the Premier League, but he did give a fighting chance to a team that looked dead and buried when he arrived.
Carvalhal blamed the results before his arrival for the relegation, and his comments to the BBC after Sunday’s defeat didn’t exactly sound like a man who is sticking around.
“I said I need time to think, talk with my family and friends, and after we will talk again and then take a decision,” said Carvalhal.
“This is a fantastic club, the organisation and fans and the spirit we have in Swansea means they must be back soon as possible, whether it is with me or not we will see.”
So, Leeds fans, would you take a punt on Carvalhal? Would he be a better fit than Paul Heckingbottom? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
