Leeds United fans hope club do not swoop for axed Reading boss Stam

The managerial merry-go-round nabbed another soul this week when Jaap Stam was sacked by Reading.

The news particularly peaked the interest of Leeds United fans given that they were previously linked to the Manchester United legend prior to hiring Andreas Christiansen.

The Dane did not stay at Elland Road for the long haul, though, as he was sacked in February following a run of disappointing results.

Paul Heckingbottom swiftly took over, but he has picked up just one Championship win since becoming Leeds boss.

The dismal run, which has dropped the Yorkshire outfit to 14th in the table and 12 points adrift of a playoff spot, has made some supporters yearn for the return of Christiansen.

Today, after Reading confirmed the departure of Stam, reliable Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay claimed on Twitter that the Whites had considered a move for the ex-United star.

In response, many Leeds fans made it clear that they do not want the club to revisit this idea.
