Leeds United in talks with former Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder

Leeds United is reportedly in talks with former Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder over vacant managerial role.

Leeds United

sacked Jesse Marsch last week and is looking for a new manager. Rayo Vallecano's manager, Andoni Iraola was their first choice to replace Marsch, but he rejected their offer.

Carlos Corberan who worked as an assistant with Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds also was one of their targets, but he recently decided to sign a new contract with West Brom.

The Spanish press also reported that Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez has rejected Leeds United's approach and wants to continue working with Real’s B team. Feyenoord's manager Arne Slot and Steven Gerrard are other names that have been linked with Leeds in recent days.

Now reports in England suggest that Leeds is in talks with Alfred Schreuder who replaced Erik ten Hag at

Ajax

but was sacked last month. Schreuder lost his job after seven league games without a win. He was Ronald Koeman’s assistant at Barcelona and then won the Belgian League with Club Brugge.

Ahead of yesterday's game, Leeds chief executive Angus Kinnear wrote in his program notes:

"The search for a new head coach is well advanced.

"The task is being able to align our list of prospects - which has been built and evolved under many seasons - with current availability and the openness of candidates to accept a new role in mid-season.

"While we have confidence in the caretaker team, we know the importance of a prompt appointment and, if [director of football] Victor (Orta) and I are in any doubt, we have [chairman] Andrea (Radrizzani's) Twitter account to keep the pressure on!"

Leeds suffered a 2-0 defeat against

Manchester United

on Sunday and now is one point above the relegation zone. Their next game is against Everton on Saturday.
