Former Leeds boss Neil Warnock has taken a swipe at Mark Hughes when asked who should replace him at Elland Road.

Warnock parted company with United on Monday, leaving the team sitting five points above the relegation places in the Championship.

But when asked in a radio interview about possible candidates, Warnock had a dig at the man who replaced him at Queens Park Rangers in January 2012.

Hughes only lasted 10 months at Loftus Road, and 64-year-old Warnock insists the job is not for the Welshman.

"I personally hope Mark Hughes follows me again and destroys another team of mine."

Warnock said: "I personally hope Mark Hughes follows me again and destroys another team of mine.

"I don't think it's a club for a young manager. There is so much going on behind the scenes it is ridiculous really. It needs somebody who has seen it all and done it all.

"I laugh when I see some of these names. A) We can't afford the compensation and b) do you think Mark Hughes would want Leeds United at the moment?

"It's a hard one but there are a lot of applicants."
