LEEDS United president Massimo Cellino has confirmed that former Forest Green boss David Hockaday will remain as first-team coach.

Hockaday had been on the verge of losing his job after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Watford in the Championship.

Cellino told the Yorkshire Post: “Yes, I decided to sack him. I said ‘he’s finished.’ But I learned a long time ago to wait on a decision for 24 hours.

“If I fire the coach I should fire myself because I haven’t signed enough good players. How can that be his fault.”
