Sam Allardyce is set to leave Leeds United following their relegation from the Premier League.
What is the news?
Allardyce reportedly held talks with Leeds’ club CEO Angus Kinnear on Thursday and according to The Telegraph both parties have decided to part ways this summer.
The 68-year-old Allardyce took charge at Leeds in the first weeks of May, replacing Javi Gracia. Big Sam was given the task to save Leeds from relegation, but eventually failed to keep the club in the Premier League. Leeds only managed to collect one point in the four games Allardyce was at the helm.
What more for Leeds?
With the departure of Allardyce, Leeds will be starting the search for manager. The club will face the tough challenge to immediately get back up to the Premier League. Leeds will also try to rebuild their technical board, after director of football Victor Orta left the club during the 2022-23 season.
What will happen next?
After Leeds’ relegation it is expected that a large number of players will be looking for a transfer. The club will face a massive rebuild during the summer as they prepare for the 2023-24 EFL Championship season.
