MARK Cooper has not been made aware of any approach from Leeds United for his services despite becoming one of the bookmakers’ frontrunners for the vacant Elland Road position.
Cooper, whose father Terry came through the Leeds youth system before spending 13 years as a professional with the Yorkshire club, is second favourite to take on the role following the dismissal of his friend Dave Hockaday after just 70 days in charge.
However, no offer has been made directly to the 45-year-old, who would harbour reservations about taking the job if he were anyway.
“It’s always flattering to be associated or be linked with jobs and especially Leeds with my family history, but I’ve got a big job on here,” he said when asked about the reported interest.
“We’ve started a project, it’s going the right way and I’m thoroughly enjoying myself.”
