Sammy Lee to return as Leeds Assistant Manager

Lee in from the cold to help McAllister in the Leeds hot-seat

Sammy Lee looks set to make a welcome return to English football as assistant manager to Gary McAllister at Leeds United. The Sun is reporting that following McAllisters appointment, Lee is set to become once again the assistant, rather than leader and be part of McAllisters back-room team.

Lee was the the first Premiership manager to be sacked this season, after leading Bolton to a dreadful start amid rumours of dressing room discontent. Despite this, McAllister and Lee could very well make a great team at Leeds. They have a lot of experience from their Liverpool days where they were part of a relatively successful period in the clubs history.

Lee is highly regarded within the game, and has also been part of the England setup in recent years.
