Leeds United news as Andrea Radrizzani linked to Marcelo Bielsa successor in Italian media


Roma manager linked to Leeds

Leeds United have contacted Roma manager Paulo Fonseca with a view to making him Marcelo Bielsa’s successor should the Argentine leave Elland Road, according to an Italian journalist.

Gianluigi Longari of Sportitalia said the Whites were one of many clubs to tentatively learn about the exiting Rome boss.

Napoli, Crystal Palace and Nice are also credited with an interest in the 48-year-old, who was largely ignored as a player but who went on to coach Porto, Braga and Shakhtar Donetsk before arriving in the Italian capital.

Andrea Radrizzani recently spoke of his high hopes of securing a deal with Bielsa before the end of the current West Yorkshire campaign.
