Skubala to take charge of Leeds for Everton and Southampton games

Leeds have announced caretaker manager Michael Skubala will remain in charge of the club's "upcoming fixtures" – including games against relegation rivals Everton and Southampton.

Skubala will take charge of Leeds' foreseeable fixtures alongside assistants Paco Gallardo and Chris Armas. All three coaches took charge of the Premier League double-header against Manchester United, which saw Leeds draw 2-2 at Old Trafford, before losing at Elland Road.

In an official statement, Leeds described the two outings as "positive performances".

After being handed more games in charge of Leeds, Skubala said: "I have really enjoyed the experience and the team and staff have responded well.

"I know I speak for Paco and Chris when I say that it is an honour to be on the touchline at this club.

"We will continue to work tirelessly to help to push on up the table in the short term, whilst the board focus on the long term future of the team."
