Paul Heckingbottom has said that “nothing has changed” about his own future at Leeds when asked whether his job was in threat.
However, he then went on to say that the next two games would be important in what happens next.
He was quoted by Mark Kielesz-Levine, reporter for the Royal Television Society.
Heckingbottom was talking at the pre-match press conference ahead of the Championship clash with Norwich on Saturday.
PH says he's made up his mind on players that will be staying here next year. He's again asked about his own future. 'Nothing has changed' he replied. But concedes that the next two games are important in what happens next. #lufc

Football Insider verdict:
Heckingbottom is normally fairly straight bat with his press conferences. He doesn’t give much away and is good at deflecting. When he was asked if he had any concerns about the Myanmar tour he just said he didn’t like flying. However, this was a stunning revelation. He’s never made any mention that his job might be under threat before, and now he’s admitted that the next two games are important for his future at the club. Neither are easy. Norwich followed by QPR and it sounds like two defeats could spell the end for Heckingbottom at Leeds. Leeds fans won’t want to lose games but the majority of them want him gone.
