Sam Allardyce leaves Leeds after just 25 days in charge of the club, just after Leeds fall into relegation.

The ex- Westham and Newcastle boss resigned after only a 25 day reign, following talks with CEO Angus Kinnear.

A statement was released from Leeds United about the situation “Leeds United and Sam Allardyce can confirm that both parties have mutually agreed for Sam’s spell at the club to end following the completion of the 2022/23 season.

“Sam joined the Whites for the final four games of the campaign and despite spirited performances against Manchester City and Newcastle United, the objective of staying in the Premier League was not reached.”

Allardyce said: “It has been an honor to manage Leeds United, a great club with an incredible fan base, who deserve to be in the Premier League. I have really enjoyed working with the staff and players at the club and I would like to thank Angus Kinnear for the opportunity.

“I’d also like to highlight the outstanding work of Karl Robinson and Robbie Keane who have worked tirelessly over the past few weeks.

“At this stage in my career I am not sure taking on this challenge, which is potentially a long-term project, is something I could commit to, but I wish the club every success for the future and hope the club returns to the Premier League, where they belong.”

CEO Kinnear also commented “We thank Sam for being brave enough to step in and do all he could to save us.

“Sadly, it was not to be, but Sam, Karl and Robbie did everything they could to lift the mood at Thorp Arch and Elland Road and for that we are all extremely grateful.”

From all statements made is seen that it is better for both parties to separate on good current terms than wait and cause possible issues. The new Coach of Leeds United will be announced within the next up coming weeks.
