Leeds searching for new manager as Warnock exits

Fallen English power Leeds is searching for a new manager after

Neil Warnock left with six matches of the season remaining.

Hopes of a return to the Premier League were rocked by a 2-1

loss to Derby on Monday that left the second-tier club eight points

adrift of the playoff places.

Warnock was in charge for less than 14 months, and his future

had been in doubt since Bahraini-bank investment bank GFH Capital

bought Leeds in December.

Leeds says Warnock was due to leave at the end of the season and

a short-list for his successor has already been prepared.

Leeds won the Premier League title in 1992 and reached the 2001

Champions League semifinals, but dropped out of the top flight in

2004 after a financial meltdown.
