Skubala New U-21 Coach

Last updated : 28 July 2022 By

Leeds United have announced the appointment of Michael Skubala as their new Under-21 head coach. 

Highly rated Skubala has held positions within the FA for a number of years, starting with heading up the national Futsal side before moving over to work with the national team’s youth set-up, culminating in becoming the coach for the England Under-18 team.

Prior to working with the FA, Skubala was the Director of Football at Loughborough University for four years. 

Skubala will be assisted by Michal Pudjak who remains in place as assistant coach of the U21 side. Previously, Pudjak worked alongside Mark Jackson who has moved up to work with Jesse Marsch and the first team on a full-time basis.  

Skubala’s appointment begins with immediate effect, and he will take training for the first time on Monday next week, as the team prepare for the Premier League 2 getting underway.
