Staunton set to join Leeds as McAllister's No.2
Leeds are poised to name Steve Staunton as assistant manager to Gary McAllister.
The former Republic of Ireland boss will meet the Leeds squad at Thorp Arch
with a view to being confirmed as McAllister's number two at Elland Road.
Staunton, who won 102 international caps for the Republic, will team up with
McAllister after the pair worked together at Coventry.
The former Liverpool, Aston Villa and Coventry full-back joined the Sky Blues
as a player when McAllister was manager in August 2003.
Staunton was appointed successor to Brian Kerr as Republic coach in January
2006, but was sacked the following October following an unsuccessful Euro 2008
