Michael Skubala touted as Leeds manager

YouTuber Conor McGilligan has claimed that Leeds United interim boss Michael Skubala could do enough to become manager until the end of the season.

What’s the word?

Amid a poor run of form that leaves the club in threat of being relegated, Jesse Marsch was sacked. The Whites could not find a replacement before their next game, so their Under-21s coach took charge.

Indeed, Skubala helped guide Leeds to an impressive away point against Manchester United and will actually remain in charge for the game against the Red Devils on Sunday at Elland Road.

While talking on the One Leeds Fan Channel, McGilligan actually said that he has been impressed by the way the interim has handled himself and suggested that he could earn himself the main job if positive results keep coming.

He explained: “I mean, listen, if Skubala was able to get a result again this weekend – I just watched his press conference, I thought it was very very impressive.

“If he is able to get a result, then you’re probably going to fire his name into the equation.”

In safe hands?

In that press conference ahead of the Man United game, Skubala actually played down the idea that he could be manager on a more permanent basis, saying: I’m not planning for anything other than a day-to-day communication with Victor [Orta], communication with the board on a day to day basis. I’m just doing the best I can do in this in this short time.”

Still, he certainly did well to lead the club to a point at Old Trafford and it will be interesting to see if the team can get a result against the Red Devils in front of their own fans.

If that happens, perhaps the club will consider giving Skubala the reins until the end of the season. One of the key reasons this could happen is simply because other targets have already rejected the club.

For instance, West Brom manager Carlos Corberan turned down an approach while Feyenoord boss Arne Slot has also essentially said no to Leeds.

With options dwindling, it does feel as though Skubala’s name could potentially end up on the club’s list of possible candidates in the near future.
