Trio to take charge of Manchester United fixture

Update following departure.

Following the announcement of the departure of head coach Jesse Marsch earlier today, Leeds United can confirm Michael Skubala, Paco Gallardo and Chris Armas will take training at Thorp Arch on Tuesday and will be in the dugout for Wednesday’s Premier League fixture against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Skubala, who previously held a number of roles at the FA, was appointed as the club’s Under-21 head coach last summer.

Development coach Gallardo enjoyed a successful playing career in Spain and served as an assistant at La Liga side Sevilla, prior to joining the Whites.

Former MLS midfielder Armas joined the backroom staff at Leeds United in January following spells at New York Red Bulls, Toronto FC and Manchester United.

Skubala will also be taking on the club’s media duties, starting with Tuesday’s pre-match press conference.
