The latest Leeds United headlines with the Yorkshire Club having named former Norwich City boss Daniel Farke as their new head coach.

Leeds United finally have a new head coach after weeks of speculation and delays with Daniel Farke having been unveiled by the Yorkshire club last night.

The former Norwich City boss will lead the Whites into the 2023/24 EFL Championship season which kicks off in just over four weeks time against Cardiff City. The German will be able to use that time to begin shaping his first team squad for the campaign but reports this morning suggest a change in the coaching staff could be the first thing on the cards.

Elsewhere, Farke’s previous comments on a current Leeds United star have been unearthed and it’s fair to say the 46-year old is an admirer. Here are the latest Leeds United headlines on Wednesday, July 5:

Victor Orta appointment ‘expected to leave’ following Daniel Farke arrival

Per a report from The Athletic, Leeds United goalkeeping coach Marcos Abad is to leave the club following the appointment of new manager Daniel Farke. The 37-year old joined the Whites in 2017 from Middlesbrough following a recommendation from director of football Victor Orta.

There is no word on who is in line to replace Abad as goalkeeping coach but the report notes that Fabian Otte was the man who worked in that role under Farke at Borussia Mönchengladbach last season. Farke has brought three members of staff with him in Eddie Riemer, Christopher John and Chris Domogalla.

He said: “I’m not surprised by how good James has been.I always liked him, but sadly there was no chance for us to get him when Man United called! To deliver that quickly on this level says a lot about his character.”
