Leeds United technical director Gwyn Williams says the club have had plenty of applications for the vacant manager`s job from people both currently in and out of work.
Leeds have stated that they are not going to rush into a decision on the vacant position, stating it is going to be a huge appointment, not necessarily in terms of name but for the future of the club and getting back into the Premier League.
Williams says the club are looking for someone who can gain the respect of the current squad, someone who can take them forward.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Williams said, “When a club like Leeds United are looking for a new manager there is always going to be plenty of applicants.
“Shaun, our chief executive controls it and there have been a lot of good applicants from people who are out of work but also people also people who would like the opportunity to come here, even though they are in a job at another club.
“It will eventually be down to the board to decide. As a club, we need to move forward and do things better because we are all frustrated because we cannot get back up with the big boys.
“To get back up with the big boys we need to get someone proper and decent and someone who can gain the respect of the players that we have got here at present and can work with them and hopefully take us forward.”
Neil Redfearn has been told he will be in charge at least until the Doncaster Rovers game next Saturday.
If a new manager is announced following the game with Doncaster, it will leave them just fourteen games to save Leeds season.
Leeds are now in tenth place in the championship following another home defeat, their sixth of the season, this time at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion.
Despite the defeat, Leeds are still only four points from a play-off position but they look a long way off a team challenging for promotion.
