Former Leeds United manager David O’Leary was present at Elland Road once more at the weekend a year after his revealing interview with the Telegraph in which he suggested he was open to the idea of returning to football.
O’Leary, who has been without a job now for six years now, was interviewed by Leeds after watching the 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday from the Legends Lounge.
It was not the first time he has attended a fixture this season having been invited back to his former club for lunch and a match previously by owner Andrea Radrizzani, who is aiming to bring all elements of the club closer together, as shown by his decision to further integrate the Ladies team yesterday.
He admitted that Leeds fans have continually asked him about his plans for the future and whether or not he will ever return to the Elland Road dugout.
“When are you coming back! It’s embarrassing really”.
“I’m so privileged that they still remember me.
“It’s just so nice and I always knew that I had their support, and I appreciate their support even more now. Twenty years and they still remember me – I can’t believe that!”
