David Prutton has said that whoever is appointed as new manager of Leeds United must speak the same “football language” as that of the fans. The Yorkshire club have been without a manager following Gary Monk’s decision to quit last month.
Prutton said of the situation at Leeds, “I think to be manager at somewhere like Leeds, I’m not saying it is about charisma or anything like that, but it’s important that you can speak the same language as the fans and get on board with the fans.
“And I don’t mean speak physically the same language but in terms of the football.”
The former Whites boss is strongly linked with the managerial vacancy at Middlesbrough. Last season was arguably one of Leeds best since they were relegated from the Premier League in 2004 as they ended in seventh position on the Championship standings.
It came as a disappointment to many fans when Monk opted not to carry on with the club.
