There have been many names being considered as his replacement. That is, many pundits, including Brad are expressing their opinions as to who can take over this position at the club in Elland Road. The current favorite is Feyenoord, though Brad Friedel is of a different opinion.

As per Friedel, the manager of Aston Villa is the right person who can manage the Whites. He states that Leeds is a big club and though he was unaware of what the management was thinking, he would recommend Stevie G. of course, and there is also the question as to whether Friedel would be a fit. That is an important question. It all depends on how he wants to lead and whether that fits with the board’s requirements.
