Leeds United captain Garry McAllister had signed a three-year extension to his current contract after discussions with club manager Howard Wilkinson. McAllister, 28 had joined Leeds from Leicester City for £1 million in the summer of 1990 and had not missed a single league game since.
Howard Wilkinson said “I am pleased that Gary has shown his faith in the club’s future by agreeing to stay.”
After winning the league in 1991-92 season, Leeds had a terrible season in the following year and were struggling mid-table in the league but Wilkinson was confident that it was a minor blip and the club would soon get back to competing for titles in England and Europe.
