Assistant manager Pep Clotet has posted a picture of Leeds’ youngest fan and newborn son Max on Twitter.

The former Malaga B manager was in his home country of Spain throughout the international break as his wife prepared to give birth to Max.

Clotet, who was assistant to Garry Monk at Swansea before moving to Yorkshire with the talented young manager, posted a picture of Max on his personal Twitter account with a Leeds babygrow in the background.

Clotet’s availability on the touchline during Leeds’ Championship clash against Derby on Saturday remains unclear.

Manager Monk is preparing to serve a one-match touchline ban against the Rams, after being reprimanded by the FA for comments he made towards a match official during the latter stages of Leeds’ 1-0 loss to Bristol City.

It means that if available, Clotet will take charge of the Yorkshire giants from the touchline with Monk watching on in the stands.

However, the 39-year-old Spaniard may also miss out, leaving first-team coach James Beattie the man to lead Leeds from the touchline against Derby and newly appointed manager Steve McClaren.

A win for Leeds could see them move to within touching distance of the play-offs, if other results go their way.

In other Leeds news, Michael Bridges wants to see this happen in Monk’s first season in charge at Elland Road.
