Leeds fans want McCarthy to replace Heckingbottom

Leeds fans are calling for Mick McCarthy after Paul Heckingbottom’s torrid run as Leeds boss continued with a 3-1 loss at Preston North End on Tuesday night.

Mick McCarthy announced his immediate departure and stormed out of his press conference after Ipswich’s win over Barnsley on Tuesday, and Leeds fans are hoping their club jumps at the opportunity to replace Paul Heckingbottom.

Heckingbottom has just two wins to his name since taking over in February, and supporters are growing tired of his endless excuses and frankly boring demeanor.

The ex-Barnsley man was furious with the referees in Tuesday’s loss to Preston, as Pontus Jansson appeared to be down with a head injury as Sean Maguire headed in Preston’s second.

While Heckingbottom may be the victim of a poor squad at Leeds, McCarthy has done an excellent job at Ipswich on limited resources in a difficult situation.

The 59 year-old has won more games than he’s lost since taking over in 2012, and has solidified the club as a steady mid-table side.

Leeds fans are hoping owner Andrea Radrizzani seizes the opportunity to upgrade on Heckingbottom, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
