'Are you kidding me?', 'Hung out to dry' – Leeds fans react to report Christiansen has left club
Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter after news broke that Thomas Christiansen is set to be sacked as Leeds manager within 24 hours.
Football Insider exclusively revealed the news that Leeds are set to take action after a disastrous run has seen them lose four and draw two of their last six Championship games.
They also got dumped out of the FA Cup in a shock result to League Two Newport County.
Leeds have suffered with a huge run of injuries and suspensions, with four red cards in recent weeks has seen the squad decimated.
But it seems that the club has run out of patience with the manager who was brought in in the summer to replace Gary Monk.
Following the report the news was seemingly confirmed by Phil Hay, a prominent journalist with the Yorkshire Evening Post.
All over for Leeds United head coach Thomas Christiansen. Has parted company with the club tonight. #lufc

He enjoyed a fast start to his leeds career, taking the club to the top of the Championship before it all came crashing down.
Leeds now sit in 10th place in the Championship, seven points off the play-off places.
And now it looks like someone else will be tasked at closing that gap between now and the end of the season.
Here are the best reactions from leeds fans after the news broke:
