Mr Loyal Dennis Wise Dumps Leeds

Mr Loyal Dennis Wise Dumps Leeds

The most unloyal manager in Football Dennis Wise has dumped yet another club, the second another team came calling as he departs Leeds United for Newcastle.

It may come as a great relief to Leeds Fans who didn't want Wise in the first place however it seemed that the Elland Road faithful started to warm to Wise after the clubs success in overcoming a 15 point deduction to find themselves thick in the League One playoff hunt.

A statement from Leeds United said, 'We have agreed a compensation package with Newcastle United for the services of our manager Dennis Wise and he will part company with the club on Tuesday January 29 after completing the preparations for our game at Southend United that evening.'

Wise clearly thinks he is too good for League One now just over a year from ditching Swindon Town to join Leeds.

Wisey's departure marks the second job he has ran away from in over 2 years after another club came calling.

Instead of taking Leeds back to the Championship or helping Swindon Town get promoted back to League One last season, Wise clearly has no managerial aspirations as he will join Newcastle United in a role that has yet to be determined.

Wise will not get the managers job at Newcastle after Keegan as Toon hero Alan Shearer will be waiting in the wings.

Remember Dennis the only way is down now... or did you run before you came back to Swindon in March?
