FORMER Manchester United coach Chris Armas will be at the helm when Leeds visit Old Trafford on Wednesday.
Armas was a member of Ralf Rangnick's staff during his ill-fated time as interim boss of Man Utd.
The club's stars at the time were left less than impressed during training sessions, even reportedly mocking American Armas by comparing him to Ted Lasso.
But now Armas will have a shot at masterminding some revenge over his former players.
Leeds announced on Monday that they had parted company with manager Jesse Marsch following a run which had seen them not win in the Premier League since early November.
Armas was not relieved of his duties alongside his compatriot.

Leeds confirmed the trio of staff heading the game would comprise of Armas, Michael Skubala and Paco Gallardo.
Skubala will be taking on the club's media duties until a new manager is appointed.

The Whites have also been handed a boost by the absence of Casemiro, after the Brazilian was sent off when he had his hands around Will Hughes' neck during the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Indeed, the reverse fixture, which will take place next weekend, will also see Casemiro absent owing to the three-game ban he has.
The next domestic fixture he will play in will be the Carabao Cup final, though if United decide to appeal the suspension then he may be slapped with a further one-game ban.
