Hi, my name is, my name is, my name is… Neil Warnock. Not quite as effective as 'Slim Shady', is it
But that hasn't stopped the Leeds United manager drawing inspiration from rapper Eminem as he helped launch his team's new strip.
Warnock has endured an indifferent start
to life at Elland Road since replacing Simon Grayson in February, the
nadir of which being a 7-3 reverse at home to Nottingham Forest a month
into his tenure.
Lose yourself: Neil Warnock holds aloft the new Leeds kit for next season
The Whites go into the final weekend of Championship fixtures with a 10th-place finish the best they can hope for, having spent much of the early season in and around the playoffs.
Warnock, though, was bought in to steady the ship which, to a certain degree he has. And he has previous in getting teams promoted, first with Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United and most recently QPR.
Mid-table will not be tolerated in 12 months time, or Warnock will end up cleaning out his closet.
