It appears as if the wait is finally over for Leeds United fans across the world as they have been deliberating who will be the next Coach at the club. Local television news has said this evening that the club is expected to announce on Wednesday that Massimo Cellino has appointed Dave Hockaday as Coach for the next season.
The former Southampton Coach may just be the man to lead Leeds into the Premiership within the next two years.
Hockaday, 59, departed Forest Green Rovers by mutual consent in October last year and is a former defender with Blackpool, Hull, Shrewsbury, Stoke and Swindon. He is expected to fill the gap left by Brian McDermott as the club looks to a brighter future, something that all the fans desire above all else.
But one has to ask questions about the choice of someone who has had plenty of experience with teams in the second tier and the lower leagues, but not much in terms of the Premier League, especially when others who have been in the frame have far more experience at the highest level.
As Leeds United announce their new Coach, those in the game and on the terraces will want to wish him all the best in this new venture, working with Mr Cellino and attempting what other Championship coaches and managers have failed to do thus far. He is perhaps, a surprise choice, but fans will have to trust their new owner and Manager to be the best and get their team to do their best in the new season, just a few weeks away now.
