Former Leeds manager Neil Warnock wants Mark Hughes to replace him at Elland Road so he can "destroy another team of mine". Hughes, 49, has been linked with the managerial vacancy at Leeds following Warnock's departure on Monday.

Warnock told talkSPORT: "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."
