Leeds appoint Daniel Farke as new manager on four-year contract as ex-Norwich boss makes BIG promise to Whites fans | The Sun

Leeds United manager Daniel Farke recently discussed his potential long-term tenure at the club. When asked if he’d still be in charge at Leeds United in six years, Farke responded with a wry smile and his characteristic chuckle, followed by a non-committal “you never know.”

In an upcoming match against Coventry City at Elland Road, Farke’s Leeds United team faces off against Mark Robbins, the longest-tenured manager in the Championship. Farke, who has managed five clubs since Robbins took over at Coventry, acknowledges the rarity of managers lasting long in their positions these days, hence his amused reaction. However, Farke believes that if he can realize his aspirations at Leeds United—such as guiding the club back to the Premier League and establishing a strong presence there—there’s a definite chance for a prolonged stay in Yorkshire.

Farke expressed, “You never know. This job always comes with lots of pressure and it is never easy. I have been here six months and already it feels like six years because so much has happened during this time. I love it here, and if I am still allowed to be here in six years, having helped this amazing club achieve something special, I would love it. It would also mean we would have achieved our targets. I know what my targets are, short and long term, and we want to be successful.”

He draws on his prior experience, having spent six years at SV Lippstadt in his first managerial role, indicating a potential desire for a similar lengthy stint at Leeds United. This prospect would signal achievement for the club according to the fans, aligning with their goals.
