Leeds United is considering the future of Javi Gracia after defeating Bournemouth

Leeds United is studying the future of coach Javi Gracia after losing 4-1 on Sunday against Bournemouth.

Gracia was only appointed to Leeds in February, but he won just three of their 11 matches, and Leeds still struggled with relegation troubles.

The 52-year-old’s position is still being discussed, with the Leeds board debating whether to make another change with just four matches remaining in a bid to preserve their Premier League status.

Chairman Andrea Radrizzani will have no final say on Gracia’s future.

The club sits 16th in the Premier League – just one point behind 18th-placed Leicester City, and two points ahead of 19th-placed Everton, both of whom have played one game less.

Leeds did not appoint Gracia until after a poor run of form which saw the sacking of Jesse Marsh.

The West Yorkshire side are winless in their last five matches, a run which has included consecutive 5-1 and 6-1 defeats at home to Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Leeds face tough tests in their remaining four Premier League matches, with a trip to high-flying Manchester City next Saturday before a visit to third-placed Newcastle United a week later.

They then face a trip to West Ham United, before finishing the season at home against Tottenham Hotspur.
