I’LL BOSS LEEDS, NO HASSEL
THE RACE to replace Dave Hockaday at Leeds is well and truly on – and former striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink claims he is the best man for the job.
Hockaday was sacked by the club only six games into the season and academy manager Neil Redfearn has taken over first-team matters in the interim.
Hasselbaink was at Leeds for two seasons between 1997 and 1999 and the 42year-old, who also played for Chelsea, is out of a job after leaving Royal Antwerp at the end of last season.
“Leeds is a wonderful, big club where I had two great years,” said the Dutchman. “If they want to talk to me, of course I would talk to them.
“I’ve got experience, I know I could take the club forward and I know I can take the club back to where they need to go.”
Hasselbaink is not the only former striker to have thrown his hat into the ring, with Robbie Fowler also believed to have applied for the job.
