Leeds United’s hierarchy reportedly had a different managerial preference to Daniel Farke.

Despite not landing their top managerial target, Leeds United’s new owners will be pleased with how Farke is doing.

The German has won 11 of his first 19 Championship games, and with the Whites now sitting third in the table, the former Norwich City boss will be hoping he can finish the season in one of the promotion spots.
