'Doesn't make sense' - Redfearn makes bold claim over Christiansen's future at Leeds

By Russell Edge

Former Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has said that current boss Thomas Christiansen must remain at the club despite the Whites’ abysmal run of form in recent weeks.

The club have lost seven of their last nine league games in the Championship, a series of results which has seen them drop down from topping the table to currently sitting in 10th, 12 points adrift of league leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers and three away from Aston Villa in the last of the play off spots.

However, such poor form is no reason to sack the manager according to Redfearn, who believes his departure would be throwing in the towel on all the hard work he has done during his time at Elland Road.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio’s Sport @ Six show (08/11, 18:00) he said: “I wouldn’t sack Christiansen, no way. To throw it all away just doesn’t make sense. Leeds need to find a way to get back to winning ways.”

Leeds’ last outing saw them suffer a disappointing 3-1 defeat away to Brentford over the weekend, extending their unbeaten run to four games across all competitions, with their last victory coming in a 3-0 win away to Bristol City back in October.

Their next match sees them host a Middlesbrough side managed by former Leeds boss Garry Monk, with Leeds knowing that defeat would see them go a month without picking up a single point ahead of a visit to table toppers Wolves.

In other Leeds United news, the club have tabled an offer for a 19-year-old contract rebel.
