What Maddison, Pukki and others had to say about Daniel Farke linked with Leeds United

Daniel Farke is the leading candidate to land the role of Leeds United head coach, it seems. The German head coach is the overwhelming favorite with the bookies and reports in Germany suggest an agreement between Farke and the Whites.

Such claims come at the end of what has been a long and meticulous selection process over the past month to find the right person. Patrick Vieira is thought to be in the running but he is on the brink of joining Strasbourg now, while Scott Parker and Brenden Rodgers are options thought to be under consideration.

Farke is well known to English football fans after spending four and a half years in charge of Norwich City, where he won two promotions to the Premier League. The 46-year-old couldn’t keep the Canaries in the top flight, but he is still regarded in favor at Carrow Road for what he managed to do during his time at the club.
