Youngster Romario Vieira has wished Jason Blunt all the best on Twitter as he plans to depart from his Under-23s coaching position at Leeds.
The famous side announced on their official club website on June 7 that Blunt had elected to leave the club at the end of July after seven years of work.
Vieira would have spent a lot of time with Blunt since joining the club’s youth system in September of last year and the younger brother of first teamer Ronaldo wished him well on his personal Twitter account on Saturday evening.

Blunt is now heading to Peninsula League Division One West side Mousehole AFC, where he will take up the role of full time head of academy.
The senior man helped a number of youngsters make the step up to the Leeds senior team during his time at the club and while last season wasn’t brilliant for the Under-23s, fans of the Yorkshire giants will surely wish him the best like Vieira.
Now, owner Andrea Radrizzani will be on the lookout for both a manager and someone who can lead the next batch of young prospects in the future.
