Leeds United managing director Angus Kinnear is fond of manager Thomas Christiansen and believes he can turn the club’s abysmal form around, according to a journalist.

Phil Hay, the Yorkshire Evening Post’s chief football writer, reported on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday that the chief at Elland Road was positive when speaking about the Danish boss and that the club are reluctant to drop the axe.

However Hay says that the club’s current form, which has seen the Whites lose seven of their last nine league games in England’s second tier, has left an “elephant in the room” but insists they are confident Christiansen will turn it around following the impressive performances at the start of the season.

The disappointing results have seen the club plummet from league leaders into 10th place in the Championship, now sitting 12 points adrift of table toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers and three off Aston Villa in sixth, the last of the play off spots.

They will be hoping to bounce back from a 3-1 defeat to Brentford prior to the international break when they play host to Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Boro’s arrival at Elland Road will also mark the return of former Leeds boss Garry Monk for the first time, since he left the club following the end of his contract over the summer.
