Massimo Cellino admits he'll look to sack Brian McDermott if he's allowed to buy Leeds United.
Cellino has already sacked him once, on January 31, but was forced to re-instate him 48 hours later after bowing to fan power.
But there will not be a second reprieve, if an interview given by Cellino on an internet radio station is anything to go by, reports the Daily Star.
Cellino, who claims he was unaware that his conversation with a Leeds fan who was presenting the programme was being recorded, said: "The coach is maybe a good coach, but he doesn't know how to manage a club.
"I tried to sack him, but they don't let me. If I think he is not good for the team I have to sack him.
"I work for the team. I don't like him and I don't understand him very much."
