Neil Warnock: A dig at Mark Hughes

Warnock parted company with United on Monday, leaving the team sitting five points above the relegation places in the Championship.

But when asked in a radio interview about possible candidates, Warnock had a dig at the man who replaced him at Queens Park Rangers in January 2012.

Hughes only lasted 10 months at Loftus Road, and 64-year-old Warnock insists the job is not for the Welshman.

Warnock said: "I personally hope Mark Hughes follows me again and destroys another team of mine.

"I don't think it's a club for a young manager. There is so much going on behind the scenes it is ridiculous really. It needs somebody who has seen it all and done it all.

"I laugh when I see some of these names. A) We can't afford the compensation and b) do you think Mark Hughes would want Leeds United at the moment?

"It's a hard one but there are a lot of applicants."
