Clouds of uncertainty hanging over Leeds United
Leeds United, who face Blackpool at Elland Road tomorrow night in the npower Championship, are in a period of uncertainty after manager Neil Warnock’s confirmation that he will be leaving at the end of the season, if not before.
The Whites boss is under increasing pressure from fans to quit as he looks increasingly unlikely to be able to mastermind a promotion challenge.
Chants of ‘Warnock – time to go’ rang out from the away end during Sunday’s 4-0 FA Cup exit at the hands of Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City.
Warnock, whose contract is up at the end of the season, said after his side’s latest defeat that it is club owners GFH Capital’s “prerogative” if they want to sack him before then.
However, with the match against Blackpool taking the focus away from off-the-field controversy, Warnock revealed he has received a boost as midfielder Paul Green looks set to return after missing out on Sunday with an ankle injury.
“Greeny went over his ankle,” said Warnock. “He was desperately disappointed.
“He asked if he could have a late fitness test, but I said no. I would rather him be fit for Wednesday.”
The Whites boss also confirmed there were no injury worries with Michael Brown and Ross McCormack, who were both replaced at half-time in Sunday’s cup loss at the Etihad.
“I wanted to keep Browny and Ross for Wednesday,” Warnock said.
“Browny is doing brilliant at the minute and he’s played a lot of football, and Ross is obviously a big player for us and I want him for Wednesday.”
