Latest News: Leeds United and Daniel Farke

Leeds United, one of the prominent football clubs in England, has been making headlines recently regarding their managerial choices for the upcoming season in the Sky Bet Championship. The club’s pursuit of a new manager has attracted attention, with several names emerging as potential candidates. In this article, we will delve into the latest news involving Leeds United and Daniel Farke, along with other notable contenders for the managerial position.

While the success of any manager is not guaranteed, Daniel Farke has demonstrated the potential to excel as the Leeds United boss, particularly in the Sky Bet Championship. His previous experience with Norwich City in the same league speaks volumes about his capabilities.

During his time at Norwich, Farke achieved significant success, leading the team to two Sky Bet Championship titles in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons, as reported by Transfermarkt. These accomplishments highlight his ability to build a strong team and compete at the top level of the Championship.

Although Farke’s recent stint with Borussia Monchengladbach ended with his dismissal after a disappointing tenth-placed finish in the Bundesliga during the 2022/23 season, this setback may present an opportunity for him to make a comeback in English football.

Roland Virkus, the director at Borussia Monchengladbach, explained the decision to part ways with Farke and expressed gratitude for his contributions. This departure from the German club potentially opens the door for Farke to pursue the Leeds United managerial role.

Should Farke be appointed as the Leeds United boss, he will have the support of interim football advisor Nick Hammond, who will assist in identifying new recruits during his short-term appointment at Elland Road. With Farke’s track record and experience, he has the potential to make a positive impact and bring success to Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship.

Leeds United’s Managerial Shortlist

According to The Guardian, Leeds United has compiled a shortlist of potential candidates for the managerial role. Alongside Daniel Farke, two other names that have surfaced are Carlos Corberan and Scott Parker. The club is meticulously assessing these options as they aim to appoint a competent leader who can steer them towards success in the Sky Bet Championship.

Brendan Rodgers’ Decision

Initially, Brendan Rodgers, the esteemed manager of Leicester City, was the preferred choice of 49ers Enterprises, who recently completed a takeover of Leeds United. However, it appears that Rodgers has declined the opportunity to manage the Yorkshire club, opting for a return to his former team, Celtic.

Farke’s Consideration for Celtic Job

Reports from The Daily Mail suggest that Daniel Farke was among the contenders for the Celtic managerial position. The Scottish giants were assessing multiple candidates, including Manchester City coach Enzo Maresca and Bodo/Glimt boss Kjetil Knutsen, to replace Ange Postecoglou at Parkhead. Farke’s impressive achievements with Norwich City made him a potential candidate for the role.

Steven Gerrard’s Potential Move

Leeds Live reported that former Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard was also considered for the managerial position at Leeds United. However, recent developments indicate that Gerrard is set to become the new manager of Saudi Pro League side Al-Ettifaq, as revealed by Romain Molina. This development has effectively ruled out Gerrard as an option for Leeds United.

Farke’s Possibility at Elland Road

In an interview with Football FanCast, journalist Jacobs expressed his belief that Daniel Farke joining Leeds United as their new manager is indeed a possibility. He emphasized that the recent acquisition of the club by the new ownership group, 49ers Enterprises, would likely lead to the resolution of the managerial situation. As anticipated, the ownership change has paved the way for potential managerial appointments, and Farke stands as a viable candidate for the role.


Leeds United’s quest to find their next manager has seen various names linked with the position. While Brendan Rodgers passed on the opportunity, Daniel Farke remains a strong contender. The decision made by the club’s hierarchy will significantly impact the future direction of Leeds United and their aspirations for success in the Sky Bet Championship.
