raich carter leeds united manager Raich Carter, born in Sunderland was one of the most talented forwards England ever produced. Winning everything the game had to offer by the age of 24. At one of his clubs Hull, Carter became player-manager and bought Don Revie from Leicester for 20,000. Carter was a schoolboy hero of Revie's.
Carter retired from football and opened a sweet shop but was soon back in football, currently managing at Cork in Ireland when he answered a call from the Leeds board.
Taking over a Leeds that had flirted with promotion under Buckley and led by a star in John Charles but that was suffering financially. Leeds finished 10th in his first season, with Charles bagging a club record of 42 goals in 39 games. Carter's style of managership rubbed some players the wrong way. The commited Burden as a result of the friction was transferred out to Bristol. In 1956 Carter did lead the way to promotion and the first season back Leeds finished a decent 8th. The following season saw the loss of Nightingale through injury and Charles left to Juventus for 65,000 which would no doubt have a bearing on the low place of 17th. After the 1957-58 season, the Leeds board shocked the football world and did not renew his contract. He felt hard done by after he had gained the club promotion and felt the board provided inadequate funding.
