Pep Clotet to leave Leeds United, fans react

Leeds United will no longer have Pep Clotet at the club after it was confirmed on Monday that he will not form part of Thomas Christiansen’s backroom team.

The Spaniard worked as Garry Monk’s assistant last season, and it was widely thought that he would remain at the club following his colleague’s exit.

At one point, Spanish newspaper¬†Sport¬†had him as favourite to become the Whites’ new head coach.

It was not to be, though, as Christiansen was recently appointed, and during his unveiling, the club’s director of football Victor Orta announced some departures.

He confirmed that Clotet will leave when his contract expires on June 30, while James Beattie will also no longer be at Elland Road.

Clotet was a favourite among the supporters, and many have expressed their disappointment in the Spaniard’s departure.

Others, though, understand that Christiansen will want to bring in his own men, and that the supporters should stand by him.
