Leeds United eyes Sam Allardyce as new coach amidst Gracia exit rumors

The Premier League club Leeds United is reportedly considering replacing their current coach Javi Gracia with former England coach Sam Allardyce, according to recent reports by the British media.

With just four games remaining in the season, Leeds are sitting in 17th place in the league table, just above the relegation zone, but only due to a better goal difference.

The Spanish coach Gracia, who joined the club as a successor to Jesse Marsh in February, has only won three out of eleven league games so far, leading to speculations about his departure from the club. Additionally, the club has lost four out of their last five matches and will face a tough visit to Manchester City on Saturday.

Leeds had appointed Gracia on a “flexible” contract, which has led to speculation that they could bring in Allardyce, who has previously coached clubs like Bolton, West Ham, and Everton, among others. The BBC has reported that club officials are considering Allardyce, who has been out of work since his former club, West Brom, were relegated from the Premier League in the 2022/21 season.

Leeds is facing a difficult challenge in their bid for survival in the league, as they have to play against some tough opponents such as Manchester City, Newcastle, West Ham, and Tottenham in their remaining fixtures.
