Although not everyone’s cup of tea, Víctor Orta has experienced a marmite season in his first season at Elland Road.
The DoF has been made the scapegoat for Leeds’ summer additions and has been the man for Radrizzani to discuss any football related issue this season.
Although some signings have shined this season including Saiz and somewhat Lasogga (he did start the season very well). Orta has been just as accountable for the lack of enthusiasm towards Felix Weidwald and somewhat Caleb Ekuban and Jay Roy Grot.
Orta’s time at Leeds could now set to be up with reports suggesting that the Spaniard is a target for Deportivo La Coruna, who want him to head their scouting and recruitment division.
With talks dating back to early March, it seems Orta is willing to entertain the idea of returning to Spain, where we worked under Spaniard Monchi at Sevilla from 2006 to 2013. His experience at working with Zenit, Elche and Boro seem to be an enticing prospect for the fallen Spanish giants.
A move away from Orta’s Transfer dictatorship could see some power returned to head coach Paul Heckingbottom when it comes to recruitment. A more English standard of recruitment means that the gaps that needs to be filled with the correct players may bare some valued fruit for next season.
However, the loss of Orta could somewhat frustrate Leeds Owner Andrea Radrizanni, who will lose one of his most trusted advisers during his reign at Leeds United.
Is Orta leaving a plus or minus for Leeds? Have your say in the comments below.
