Wikipedia pranksters name Csaba Laszlo as United boss – and take a dig at Dundee

With Dundee United still to announce a new boss following the departure of Ray McKinnon, online pranksters have been up to mischief.

Possibly growing impatient at the long-running saga which has been going on for over a week now, the Wikipedia page for favourite Csaba Laszlo has been altered proclaiming him to be the new boss at Tannadice.

The Hungarian’s page even contains quotes from a supposed press conference unveiling him.

The page has him as saying: “I’m not here to take part. I am not even here to win. I am here to bombard the city with the sexiest soccer it has ever seen.”

It went on to some expletives aimed at Dundee FC.

A quick read, however, gives a massive hint that it is a case of being a practical joke.

United have held a press conference today, but it was conducted by caretaker boss Laurie Ellis to preview Saturday’s massive Championship clash with St Mirren.

Tele’s chief football writer Tom Duthie said: “I can confirm Mr Laszlo wasn’t present and the events described on his page did not happen.”

United are expected to announce their new manager in the near future.
