Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says Leeds United sacking Javi Gracia would not be impossible after embarrassing losses to Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
The Whites have shipped 11 goals in two games after second-half capitulations against Crystal Palace and Liverpool. On the bright side, Leeds scored first in both games. Javi Gracia has said that the team have to improve in their next few games.
Jamie Carragher has warned that Gracia could easily be sacked before the end of the season:
“It’s not [impossible]. They got rid of a God-like figure in Bielsa when they thought they were going to go down, and I think it took them so long to get this guy in and they tried a few different options, I think it would be really tough at this stage of the season to go for another manager.
“So, I think he’ll be there between now and the end of the season. But, if you’re talking about the next two or three games going really badly and they lose badly, they might think why not do something?
“That’s what every other club is doing down there – the other clubs down there – you might be thinking that manager might go in not so long, because the stakes are so high financially.”
Leeds are two points clear of the bottom three but their goal difference has taken a battering in their last two games. They face Fulham this weekend.
