McDermott's future at Elland Road remains uncertain following the completed takeover of the club by Massimo Cellino - the Italian businessman who tried to sack the United boss in January.

Although Cellino hopes that McDermott will stay for the remainder of the season, his plans beyond that are unclear.

After winning his appeal against rejection to own the club by the Football League, Cellino was in attendance as the Whites slumped to their eighth defeat in nine games to lose 3-0 at Watford.

Zola has been out of management since leaving Watford earlier this season and the Italian connection has inevitably led to him being linked to the Leeds post, but agent Fulvio Marruccio was quick to dismiss the speculation.

Asked if Zola managing Leeds was a possibility, he told Press Association Sport: "Absolutely not. But I think we will see him back on a bench in England soon enough, rather than back in Italy.

"The one thing I can tell you today is that Zola will not be Leeds' coach for next season."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
