Alfred Schreuder’s appointment as Leeds United manager could be limited to the end of the season, according to a report from iNews.
Schreuder was seen at Leeds’ game against Manchester United and is rumored to be set to take charge for their upcoming match against Everton.
However, it is also mentioned that Leeds may only appoint him temporarily until the summer and reassess the situation then.
Schreuder was recently sacked by Ajax in January, and a swift return to management could be in the works for him.
Leeds has been rejected by several managerial prospects and Schreuder may be a stopgap solution, with the club potentially eyeing bigger targets such as Andoni Iraola, Arne Slot, or Marcelo Gallardo in the future.
These top targets may not be willing to take on a new role until the summer, which could be why Schreuder was chosen for a temporary appointment.
Leeds United may only offer Alfred Schreuder a deal until the end of the season, according to a report by iNews.
The Whites recently sacked Jesse Marsch and have had difficulty finding a replacement, but Schreuder’s recent visit to Elland Road has led to speculation that he will become the new manager.
The report suggests that Schreuder may be in charge for the upcoming match against Everton, but it’s also possible that Leeds may appoint someone until the summer and reassess their options then.
Schreuder was recently let go from Ajax and may see the temporary offer from Leeds as an opportunity to quickly return to management.
However, it’s unclear if he will agree to a short-term deal, as Leeds have been targeting other managers for the long-term.
Another option for Leeds could be to appoint Schreuder temporarily and keep the door open for their top targets, such as Rayo Vallecano’s Andoni Iraola or Feyenoord’s Arne Slot, to join in the summer.
Marcelo Gallardo, another potential target, is also expected to be more willing to take on a new role at that time.
While the short-term arrangement may not be ideal for Schreuder, the opportunity to work in the Premier League, even temporarily, may be appealing after his departure from Ajax.
