Leeds United sacked head coach Javi Gracia and the English Premier League club appointed Sam Allardyce as his replacement.
Leeds United appointed Javi Gracia in February 2023, as Jesse Marsch’s replacement, however, the manager has won only three out of eleven league games in charge.
Leeds United are currently 17th in the Premier League standings, above the relegations zone only on goal difference with four matches left this season.
However, the relegation-threatened club Leeds appointed Sam Allardyce on the 2nd of May, 2023 with the hope of remaining in the elite league.
The following are Sam Allardyce’s earnings if he keeps Leeds United up from being relegated.
The former Everton manager will earn 750,000 pounds per game, the 68-year-old will earn 375,000 per half, and he will earn 8,333 per minute and 138.88 per second.
Javi Gracia, the Spanish international joined Leeds United on a flexible contract, but the club board has fired him, bringing in former Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce.
The 68-year-old has been unemployed since the end of the 2020-21 season when his West Brom team suffered its first relegation from the Premier League in his managerial career.
At Leeds, Allardyce replaced new head coach Javi Gracia and become the club’s fourth manager this season, following the departure of interim coaches Michael Skubala and Kinnear.
Gracia’s departure from the Premier League this season is a record-breaking 15th managerial change.
What’s next for Leeds United?
After games against Manchester City and Newcastle United, Leeds will travel to West Ham and host Tottenham to close out the season. Their final two games of the season are among the most difficult for any club fighting relegation.
Their 23 goals allowed in April were the most by any Premier League team in a single month and the most since Birmingham also allowed 23 goals in April 1965.
A statement of no confidence in the club’s management was issued by the Leeds United Supporters Advisory Board after Sunday’s 4-1 loss to Bournemouth.
On the other hand, Leeds had already announced Orta’s departure as director of football by mutual agreement before they fired Gracia.
The Spaniard arrived at Elland Road in the summer of 2017, and three years later, he led the club back to the Premier League.
However, as of late, things have gone awry, and troubled Leeds announced Orta’s departure.

During his 21-year professional career, Allardyce made 578 league and cup appearances, primarily for the Football League but also for the North American Soccer League and the League of Ireland.
He joined Bolton Wanderers from Dudley Town in 1969 and stayed there for the next nine years, during which the club won the Second Division in 1977–78 with his assistance.
In the 1980s, he was a journeyman player who bounced around the league, suiting up for teams like Sunderland, Millwall, the Tampa Bay Rowdies, Coventry City, Huddersfield Town, Bolton Wanderers (again), Preston North End, West Bromwich Albion (where he also served as assistant manager).
In 1986–87, with his help, he led Preston to promotion from the Fourth Division.
In 1991, he made the transition from player to manager, taking over at Irish club Limerick and leading them to the League of Ireland First Division (second tier) championship that same year.
After resettling in England, he took a job as a youth coach at Preston North End and later became the club’s caretaker manager.
In July 1994, he took over as manager of the English club Blackpool but was let go just two years later after the team missed out on promotion by a hair.
He led Notts County to the Third Division championship in 1997–98 during his tenure as manager from January 1997 to October 1999.
He later managed Bolton Wanderers again, this time to the League Cup final and UEFA Cup qualification after leading the club to promotion from the First Division via the play-offs in 2001.
After a brief stint as manager of Newcastle United (May 2007–January 2008), Allardyce took over at Blackburn Rovers (December 2008–2012).
He was hired as West Ham United’s manager in June 2011, and he led the club to promotion from the Championship via the play-offs in 2012.
However, he was forced out of his position in May 2015 due to fan displeasure with the team’s play under his leadership.
After being hired in October 2015, he successfully led Sunderland to safety from relegation. In July 2016, he was named manager of the English national team, a position he held for less than a year before accepting the same role with Crystal Palace five months later.
