Fans from a number of clubs around England took notice on Wednesday evening when Aitor Karanka posted a tweet suggesting that he may be close to becoming the manager of a new team.

While the tweet is fairly ambiguous, fans of Sunderland and Everton were quick to ponder whether the former Middlesbrough boss may be close to filling the current vacancies at their respective clubs.
However, another set of fans were also intrigued by the tweet. Despite having a manager at the helm, Leeds United supporters were quick to express their opinions and urged the ex-Real Madrid to join their club and replace current boss Thomas Christiansen.
Despite an impressive start to his tenure at the club, Christiansen and his side are suffering through some dreadful form and have managed just one win in their last five games, including three defeats on the bounce.
Now, with Karanka seemingly on the move, a number of Leeds fans are hoping that the Spaniard will be the man to end their horrific form of late…
Please be Elland Road 🙏🙏

I agree with the LUFC fans calling for Karanka if he would come. TC is a no 2 at best with Karanka in charge I reckon we could get this show back on the road @LUFC
