Paul Merson says his colleague Tim Sherwood would be an ideal option for the vacant Leeds job.
Leeds United are still without a manager since sacking Jesse Marsch after a defeat to Nottingham Forest. The American lasted at Elland Road for just over a year, before a poor run of just 2 wins in 17 games brought his reign to a halt.
Sky Sports panellist Paul Merson is adamant that Sherwood would be a good fit for the job:
“I think as we talk today before three o’clock, I think it’s one of the best jobs about,”
“You never take the Southampton job over the Leeds job, any time, but even more so, this could horribly change in two games’ time. The two fixtures you’ve just said, if they get no points in those two games, then I don’t think anybody is going for that job, I think it’s a hard, hard job. I think the man sitting there (Tim Sherwood) – he’s fresh, he has a go and he’s been there before.”
The Whites take on fellow strugglers Southampton in the Premier League next weekend.
