Leeds Appoint Neil Warnock

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 18 February 2012, 14:26

Leeds United have appointed 63-year old former Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock as manager on a contract until the end of the season following the sacking of Simon Grayson on February 1st. Warnock, himself sacked by QPR in January, brings with him considerable experience and success in achieving promotion from the nPower Championship into the Barclays Premier League.

Warnock, who includes local rivals Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town on his resume, asserted "I want to be the man who is able to deliver this for a set of fans who never cease to amaze me with their numbers and loyalty".

Warnock must address Leeds faltering form, with the team having slipped to 11th in the table some 6 points behind 6th placed Birmingham City. Three defeats in the last 4 games, including an away loss to relegation entrenched Coventry City and a home defeat by Gus Poyet's Brighton has seen Leeds promotion challenge stumble.

Leeds chairman Ken Bates stated: "We believe the appointment is arguably the most important we have made. The objective was to appoint a manager who had a proven track record of getting teams promoted an in Neil we have a man whose record is second to none. We want to be in the Premier League and we will support Neil in the quest to get us there."

Temporary coach, Neil Redfearn will remain in charge for Saturday's game against fellow Yorkshiremen Doncaster Rovers and will continue his role at Elland Road under Warnocks' charge as an academy coach.
