Neil Warnock says he doesn`t think the vacant Leeds United job should go to a young manager and he also took a swipe at Mark Hughes, who followed him at Queens Park Rangers and is one of the favourites for the job.
Warnock left Leeds after the 2-1 defeat against Derby County on Monday and the departing manager feels with so much going on behind the scenes at Elland Road that they need to appoint an experienced manager.
Mark Hughes is one of the leading contenders for the job. Queens Park Rangers sacked the former Wales boss in November after he took over from Warnock the previous season and Warnock took a swipe at his successor at Loftus Road.
Speaking on TalkSport, Warnock said, “I personally hope Mark Hughes follows me again and destroys another team of mine.
“I don`t think it`s a club for a young manager. There is so much going on behind the scenes it is ridiculous really. It needs somebody who has seen it all and done it all.
“I laugh when I see some of these names. A) We can`t afford the compensation and B) do you think Mark Hughes would want Leeds United at the moment?
“It`s a hard one but there are a lot of applicants.”
Former Reading boss Brian McDermott still leads the market, with Brighton boss Gus Poyet and Martin O`Neill amongst the favourites.
