Daniel Farke to be sacked soon by Leeds United as ‘Unacceptable’ scenario mooted

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…

Paul Robinson has tipped new Leeds United manager Daniel Farke for the sack if he does not have the club battling for promotion by Christmas.

Farke took the job based on a prime remit: immediate promotion back to the Premier League. However, the German does not have a reputation for instant success following an initial 14th-place finish with Norwich in his first Championship with the Canaries as well as his recent sacking from Borussia Mönchengladbach after an underwhelming 10th-place finish.

Leeds has high expectations and will rely on Farke’s Championship expertise, including two promotions with Norwich, to get them back to the promised land. Farke didn’t get his Leeds career off to the best start after a 2-0 loss to Manchester United on Wednesday (12 July), albeit it was a friendly.

Robinson, however, has claimed that the ice may be thin underneath Farke’s feet unless he and his player give the Elland Road faithful full commitment on the pitch, while the owners will be expecting points.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said: “At his previous clubs, he didn’t have the immediate instant impact. At Norwich, he came 14th in his first season. In the Bundesliga last time out he didn’t really hit the ground running with Borussia Mönchengladbach, but I think the remit is different.

“He’s had a conversation with the owners, and they know he’s capable of getting the team out of the championship, but his timescale won’t be at the same as his time at Norwich.

“If they’re anywhere near 14th by Christmas, I think there will be a change in manager. He knows that he’s signing for a very big football club with huge expectations of being in the Premier League, and 14th for Leeds United is not good enough and unacceptable.

“If that’s where he is, I think he will find himself back at the Job Centre again! For him, he’s taken on a huge role, a massive challenge. But he obviously knows what comes with that and the expectation.

“The supporters for that football club, regardless of what league they’re in, that stadium will be packed to the rafters – they could fill it out twice. The supporters will always be there for the team, but they demand the very best for the shirt.

“They don’t demand a style of football, they don’t demand winning every game and they don’t demand success. They demand that every player on the pitch gives their all for that jersey.

With the squad they’re going to have in the Championship, they’re going to be there or thereabouts. For the manager to have a midtable start or a 14th-place finish won’t be acceptable.”
