Leeds hero Hasselbaink in the frame to return as their new manager

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Leeds are weighing up an approach to old-boy Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink about a return to Elland Road as they step up their manager search.

The Yorkshire giants‘ then-owner Massimo Cellino wanted to speak to the Dutchman, who was a fans’ favourite during his playing days at Elland Road in the 1990s with 34 Premier League goals in his two seasons there, a year ago.

But the 45-year-old rejected the opportunity and ex-Swansea boss Garry Monk, who was confirmed as Middlesbrough’s new manager on Friday, landed the job.

Cellino sold Leeds to fellow Italian businessman Andrea Radrizzani last month but, despite the change of ownership, former Burton and QPR manager Hasselbaink is back under consideration following Monk’s departure.

Ex-Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka is also in the frame to be the next occupant of the Championship club’s hot-seat.
