Leeds fans react as Heckingbottom in line for Hibernian job

Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to a huge managerial update, as Paul Heckingbottom is all set to become Hibernian manager.

According to Sky Sports, Heckingbottom is in line to take over at the Scottish club, and arrived at their East Lothian training centre to complete the deal on Wednesday.

Hibs have been without a manager since Neil Lennon left last month, and they currently sit eighth in the Scottish Premier League, a whopping 19 points below the big two.

Needless to say, plenty of Leeds fans have been running the rule over the impending appointment of Heckingbottom, as the ex-Barsnley man was not a popular figure at Elland Road.

After replacing Thomas Christiansen, the 41 year-old won just four league games in charge of Leeds, amassing a win percentage of just 25 per cent.

Of course, the arrival of the enigmatic Marcelo Bielsa has completely changed the fortunes at the Yorkshire club, and let’s just say they don’t have much hope for their new friends north of the border.
